6. Horseshoe Farm
While I was living in Greensboro, AL, I volunteered with an afterschool mentoring program called Project Horseshoe Farm. This program was started by John Dorsey, a doctor at Hale County Hospital, and is evolving to include fellows and a residential program for vulnerable persons in rural west Alabama. I think it is going to be an extraordinarily transformation opportunity for the fellows and participants in the program, offering compassionate support, where services were previously lacking. Check out their website: http://www.projecthsf.org/ This is an image of one of the buildings on the emerging Project Horseshoe Farm campus. The house is typical of historic homes in this part of the south. This painting is one of a series of paintings done on hot press watercolor paper, my first experimentation with this type of paper.
