Kentucky Appalachia Outdoor Painters gathered at this wedding chapel in the Appalachia Mountains, nestled near Red River Gorge, Daniel Boone National Forest and Cave Run Lake.
Inspired things happen with each plein air outdoor painting, and this one is special. GPS took me to the "wrong" resort home of Julie Collett. But was I really lost?
Julie invites us to paint her outdoor chapel and the wildflowers in bloom and that's where we move. But in the smallest of worlds, Julie and I learn we were born at the same Wayne Hospital in Greenville, Ohio, hundreds of miles away.
Julie describes how this special wedding event location happened, the search for the church bell and stained glass, and another special gem of painting outdoors in Kentucky.
I do another pastel painting and you also will see the work of Diane Howell, her grandson, Spencer, 7, Debbie Billips, and Regina Rollis. Vicky also joined us, but she shot reference photos with Diane's other grandson, Hayden, and I didn't get video of them.
Thanks to Julie Collett, SunriseRidgeFarmEvents.com.
