Lucy Woods came to Paonia in 1984 and raised three creative children. She paints outdoor life as watercolor landscapes. She relishes the natural world as muse and companion, often going for days with only her four-legged friends as company. She frequently travels to entice her eye with the freshness of new glens, of winding trails, and of rolling hills near the western coast. Lucy says, "Painting increases my happiness factor ten-fold. I love expressing impressionistically. The outdoors calls like a welcoming friend, and she goes, gladly. " Life is Camp."
