Parkway Cove recently honored Margaret London, recognizing her accomplishment as the second place winner in an assisted living national art competition.
The competition, which was held on Facebook, is a first for Ms. London, who has no formal training.
Ms. London, a resident of Parkway Cove, returned to Tennessee in 2012, after living for decades in Florida. As a teacher, Ms. London had used art as a teaching tool and for Christmas 2012, the residents of Parkway Cove gifted her with a painting set.
The painting is titled, “The Old Home Place,” and is the memory of her childhood homestead, a 104-acre farm in Tipton County.
The house is now gone, but with the new art set, Ms. London decided to paint a picture of it to share the memory with her friends.
The picture is on display at Parkway Cove, 805 Bert Johnson Avenue, in Covington.
