COVER ART THIS MONTH: HIBERNATION BY KAREN NOEL - 23x27 watercolor, mixed media - “Many times, for me, inspiration comes through a meditative connection with nature, and the paintings become a symbolic journal of my inner and outer experiences. Although I miss the Pacific Ocean, I am now captivated by the luminous Blue Ridge Mountains, and the color of the seasons. My challenge is not to produce a realistic representation, but to capture the magical spirit of the environment.” My work can be seen at Woolworth Walk in Asheville or visit karennoelart.com
