In October I had a short two-week residency at the Hambidge Center for the Arts in Georgia and was a featured artist during their annual open house and major fall festival arts event. While there, I discovered a new color of leaves  to add to my fall palette that year (salmon pink) thanks to the turning of the sourwood trees. Hambidge is nestled in the foot hills of the Blue Ridge and Mountains (10 miles south west of the NC border) and is on about 600 acres of beautiful wooded rolling hills complete with an impressive waterfall and meandering streams. They have about a dozen cabins , each designed to house either writers, composers, choreographers, musicians or visual artists. It was a great, but too short, experience and I look forward to returning.
