June 25, 2011--Leiper’s Fork, TN--Imagine taking a break in a comfortable rocker on a shady back porch overlooking Leiper’s Creek in Williamson County, TN. Now envision yourself learning to create a painting in oils in that same setting with the help of an experienced, talented instructor. If this is your lifelong dream, then you can make it a reality on July 14 at Laurel Leaf Gallery in historic Leiper's Fork, TN. This quaint little village is home to major stars like Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, the Judds, Keith Urban, Nicole Kidman, and others. Why not take a mini-vacation and stay at a local bed and breakfast or another picturesque inn in nearby Franklin? We will be happy to send interested participants a list of hotels in the area. A Virginia fan of Thompson's artwork has already registered for this workshop.
