Smart Bets: Lucy Hunnicutt

In the late 1980s, Lucy Hunnicutt left her career, her marriage and her home in Texas. She wound up in remote north Florida where she tended a plant nursery and picked up a paint brush. "The first thing I ever did was a dream I had still in my mind from the night before. In it were angels against the dark blue sky with the words 'the wings of white birds became angels and flew to the far heavens where they rested,'" she says in her bio. These days, the self-taught artist is based in Alabama where she paints her neighbors, friends and favorite musicians. Hunnicutt is featured in American Folk Art & Framing's new show, Rested Soul, which runs Thursday, April 5 through Wednesday, April 25. An opening reception, concurrent with the season's first downtown art walk, takes place on Friday, April 6 from 5-8 p.m. (Pictured: “She Said Yes.”)
