We just returned from 5 days in wonderful Asheville NC. Over the weekend they were celebrating the River Arts District Studio Tour, an exciting event that happens twice a year. They have over 160 artists with studios in 19 large old warehouses. There are free trolley rides between the buildings and the artists have their studios open and are demonstrating their creative processes all day long through the weekend. I had a thrilling opportunity to watch a painter create very large and very colorful abstract expressionist pieces. I came home so totally jazzed about what I saw that I got out the paints immediately! If you would like to see his work, and watch live paintings via YouTube, do a search for all things Jonas Gerard. He is amazing! Have some fun with amazing eye candy from Jonas! (be sure you have your speakers on)
