the-greenbrier-artistic-inspiration

The Greenbrier in White Sulfur Springs, West Virginia was a dream come true.  Just as I imagined, stepping through the doors of the grand entrance was much like stepping back in time.  As An Artist at The Greenbrier I felt like I was walking hallowed halls.  Grand lives had been lived in these spaces and finally I had become a small part of the spirit of The Greenbrier.

I decided to work in a circle this time around to accentuate the graceful lines of the Lisianthus and Snapdragon stems… I’m still obsessed with my nearly noen pink watercolor and seem to be adding it to […]
