About the Book

Florence Thomas, a native of the Grassy Creek community of Ashe County, North Carolina, painted most of her life. She began her career in 1930 at the Moore Institute of Art, Science and Industry in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and well into her nineties continued to paint the landscapes, still lifes, rural scenes, and farm animals that brought her renown. This book combines a biography of Thomas with reproductions of 124 of her paintings. Many are accompanied by remarks from the author on her intentions and technique. Information on the artist’s training and artistic development, her sense of composition and especially color, and life on her 400-acre farm on the North Carolina–Virginia state line is also included.
