Somewhere along the way, between childhood and adulthood lived on the same property, neighbors have moved in. Many of whom are artists. On the 1.5 miles that make up my country road there live 4 artists — that I know of.
It’s kind of funny as I struggle to take mediocre pictures of my goings on as these folks create true beauty.
My mom just sent me a link.
Joanne Benson ( to whom I have probably waved a million times without even realizing it ) has done a lovely “Benton Road and Around the Block” series. This is my neighborhood.
So many of you have asked, so there it is in watercolor.
Maybe someday, she’ll even paint me in my apron and sun hat feeding my chickens. Don’t laugh. A country girl can dream, can’t she?!
Thank you, Joanne. It is wonderful to see it all captured so charmingly.
