After spending a day at home, I decided to continue my outdoor-traveling-artist training, and head toward the mountains. My goal was West Virginia, but I stopped in Eliott county to visit a good friend.
Eliott County is interesting because it is the home of many of Kentucky’s famous folk artists. It is not unusual to see a painted barn by Jo Ann Butts when driving around.
While driving around the county, I realized why so many artists live in this area…it is beautiful. I did not have time to do a full painting, but I made a few sketches with my ipad while traveling.
These sketches don’t scratch the surface of how fun you can have in Eliott county. I highly recommend seeing it for yourself!
