“Since college, I have enjoyed all forms of art and crafts. Every town I have lived in has had many teachers. When possible I have studied with them. Oils are my favorite. Now acrylic is popular. For many subjects, water color is the best choice. With the covered bridges, Blount County has a wonderful subject. Several friends have started coming to my house and we paint together. It is a great inspiration.” Kitty Ludolf owns The Tea Party Catering and Crafts. Contact number: (205) 274-8457.
Gloria Eubanks Waters, homemaker residing in Snead “I am a self-taught artist, and have loved to draw and paint since I was a child. I began to concentrate on my art seriously about 30 years ago. I love taking a blank white canvas and turning it into something beautiful. I love doing portraits and putting my feelings into them. I paint mostly in oils and pencil drawings. I have done acrylics and water color also. Anyone interested in my paintings can reach me at (256) 593-7810 or Gloriace122@aol.com.”
