Who is your favorite North Carolina artist? This question came to mind recently when I received a beautiful book from Goldsboro artist Brenda Behr. Several of Brenda’s beautiful images are included in Kimberly C. Maselli’s book Painting North Carolina – Impressions en Plein Air.

I grew up with an artist. My dad, William Leslie, Jr., was a watercolorist who captured the beauty of the North Carolina mountains in the 1940’s, 50’s and 60’s. His paintings are showcased in my book Blue Ridge Reunion.

What about you? What artist speaks to your soul?  Please share.
