Monday through Sunday, September 14th - 20th

The "Tunnel Hill Battle Paintout" will be next weekend (Saturday and Sunday, September 19th & 20th) during the annual Battle of Tunnel Hill Civil War reenactment. The paintout welcomes 20-25 artists from Georgia, Tennessee and Alabama. This link shows photos from last year's event.

All during this coming week, we'll be painting in the mornings beginning around 8:30 and again in the late afternoons. The battlefield is usually quiet, but this week will see the hustle of tents being erected and the sound of soldiers practicing marching drills. This morning we happened upon several reenactors cooking breakfast over an open fire. The crisp morning air together with hints of Autumn color in the foliage suggests a wonderful painting weekend coming up.
