March 13th, members of the Fine Arts Association of the Hill Country met at the Junction City Park for a sack lunch picnic and photo opportunity at Kimble County’s historical First Sawmill. After lunch the group met at the Kimble County Library for an outstanding program by Kim Paxson and Connie Chadwell. Paxson and Chadwell, both very accomplished artists, showed several examples of their art work before delivering their presentations.
Kim Paxson gave an uplifting and inspirational talk about how she went from being a successful artist to being what she referred to as “brain dead”. She told about having a creative block and how she is recovering from it. She shared ways of learning how to deal with minor and major creative blocks, or how to avoid being “brain dead” again. Kim shared many ideas and gave suggestions of things to do to keep the block at bay. At the conclusion of her program there was a round table discussion where ideas and suggestions were presented by members about their experiences.
Connie Chadwell talked about her on line marketing and gave information about several websites for artists, tips and blog sites.
This was a very informative and uplifting meeting and we sincerely thank Kim Paxon and Connie Chadwell for their time and efforts.
