Welcome to the new BLOG section of our lenoredepreebooks.com website. If you have been one of our face book friends, we doubly welcome you to use this new blog for news and updates on 47 Houses on the Long Journey Home, and the art discovered on that journey. As of May 1, we (Gordon and Lenore De Pree) finished our 24 years in the mountains of North Carolina, packed up our “Home”, and moved to Holland, Michigan. We have moved into Baker Lofts, a 110 loft apartment condo which formerly produced Baker furniture, and are busy exploring the city of Holland. We take with us many loving memories of Ashe county, NC, and will incorporate the energy and inspiration we received there into creating a new life of writing and painting in this beautiful Lake Michigan city. New scenes and new contacts are off to a wonderful start. Less than a month after “landing” here, we had joined the Holland Arts Council, and a complete show of our oil paintings was set up downtown. How’s that for a welcome?
