This is a painting of the Knowles Family Home in Telfair County, Georgia. My father, John E. Knowles, helped my grandfather build it for their family circa 1945. It has remained in the family for over sixty years until it was sold in 2013. I have many fond memories of times spent with my cousins in this home.
I painted it, with Barb Dickerson’s guidance, as a gift to my father for his 90th birthday. It was presented it to him on December 7, 2013.
I have been taking art lessons from Barb Dickerson since 2010. I had no prior formal training with painting and I am really enjoying the time spent in her classes.
Barb gives me an opportunity to express myself creatively while learning about color, painting, and composition. She is supportive of all of her students’ endeavors and
instructs each according to their needs.
