We invite you to be investors and let us host you to four fantastic nights at Wildflower Ranch Inn with a Kentucky Horse Farm painting experience, with award-winning artist Kathleen Hudson.

We will also visit three distilleries in our own backyard—Limestone Branch and Maker’s Mark. The latter has two outstanding Dale Chihuly glass installations. The Bardstown Bourbon Company, the largest new distillery in America, is also home of Bottle & Bond Kitchen and Bar, the first full-service Kentucky Bourbon Trail restaurant and bar in a distillery.

All of these delights are included. We will have many culinary experiences for you as well. Delicious classic meals and Carol’s kitchen persona, The Bourbon Tart, will lead you in making Bourbon Balls and Kentucky Derby Chocolate Pecan Pie. Your four-night accommodations are on us and all meals are included. You can select room accommodations below.

Kathleen B Hudson lives and paints in Lexington, KY, where she has a studio at Artists’ Attic. Hudson is a Signature Member of the American Society of Marine Artists and an Artist Member of the Copley Society of Art in Boston, MA. She received the Grand Prize in the 6th Annual PleinAir Salon for her painting Bright Morning, Timberline Falls, which was featured on the July 2017 cover of PleinAir Magazine. The same month Southwest Art named her an “Artist to Watch.” Hudson moved from her native Kentucky to Boston, receiving her undergraduate degree at Harvard University.  After graduating, she was selected to join Boston’s Copley Society of Art, the oldest non-profit art association in America. Hudson returned to her hometown of Lexington and began where you can find her in the studio creating larger scale landscapes that emphasize the dynamic interplay of light, shadow, and atmospherics. https://www.kathleenbhudson.com/
