"Mountain Memories"
11x14" acrylic on canvas
(C) Cara Bevan 2008
My first landscape painting. It’s titled “Mountain Memories.” I was scared to paint it at first, but once
the trees came into detail I couldn’t get enough! The scene I painted was from the
John C.
Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC. I took a reference photo from the back porch of the log
house I stayed in and I fell in love with the serenity of the morning. Most of my best landscape
photographs came from the Folk School’s 390+ acres. I went there for three weeks in November of
2006 and I consider those to be the best three weeks of my life…it was paradise! There is hardly
anything in Brasstown besides the school and some local stores. It is a few miles from Murphy and
very desolate - that leaves room for nature and the true peace that you can only get in the
mountains. The entire school is made as in olden times and their motto is “sing behind the plow.” It
is from those mountain lands that I found myself and the true potential of my abilities. I was 18
when I went there the first time and I have been longing to go back ever since. Even a simple visit
there can create, or evoke, the best of mountain memories.
