VIEW by Julie Gilbert Pollard: ``Mountains Framed by Brilliant Wildflowers`` - Watercolor

Paint a mountain with rocky outcrops framed by brilliant wildflowers in the foreground.

“Jackie, the courses and quality of instructors you have cultivated through French Escapade V.I.E.W. is world-class. Jackie, you do such a great job hosting the program — you are on top of your game with production quality, responsiveness with quick replay links, and also announcing upcoming events to students. A side benefit is your fun, wickedly sharp and entertaining sense of humor. Keep up the great work. I’m not surprised that V.I.E.W. is expanding and doing so well.”
