County Park provides perfect subject for painters

Rawson’s King Mill Park, one mile west of Leonidas on King Road, provided the perfect subject for painters taking part this week in the Artist in Residence program at Glen Oaks Community College. Indiana painter Robert Hoffman invited the class to join him at the county’s King Mill Park on Tuesday to capture some of the wonderful views of the mill, dam, creek and islands. Hoffman, who has paintings in public, corporate and private collections across the nation, is shown talking with Pat Asbury, of Colon, as she begins to paint the old mill. The annual one week workshop for painters of all experience levels ends Friday, June 19, according to Michael Northrop, Professor of Art at Glen Oaks. The Painting of Landscape in Oil workshop is funded, in part, by the Flora Kirsch Beck Program Fund.
