Artist Janet Cummings talks about her inspiration for the August 2017 Cover Painting: "For the August issue I wanted something bright and cheery, that gives a glimpse of the charm you find in Highlands and Cashiers. There is so much beauty in the area, I'd barely driven down Main Street in Highlands when I chose the inspiration for this cover. So blessed to live and paint where I do."
