Barren County artist Anna Edwards has graciously allowed SOKY Happenings to use her adorable acrylic painting “Santa Checking His List” on our December cover. If you look closely you will see some familiar names on his list. Anna is a member of the Barren County Art Guild and the Scottsville Art Guild. She works in watercolor, acrylics, pastels, pen & ink and pencils. She painted this picture with lots of children’s names so several children could see their names on Santa’s list (although she gave SOKY permission to make a few “changes”…). She loves Christmas and enjoys painting Santas and snowmen. Her artwork can be found at 212 on the Main and Mary Wood Weldon Library in Glasgow, as well as Barren River Lodge. Anna is a retired Barren County teacher that fills her days painting and we sooooo appreciate her letting us use her Santa on this month’s cover, as well as allowing us to make a few changes! Thanks, Anna!!!
