2019 Hill Country Arts Foundation

January 2019 – AWOL  (Artists Without Limits)

January 2018 was another very successful year of painting at the Hill Country Arts Foundation Studios in Ingram TX . Seventeen artists painted for 10 wonderful working days.  Everyone was able to produce a nice body of new work.  We also had a show at the Duncan McAshan Visual Arts Center Gallery again this year with good sales and interest.
