912 Twin Oaks Trail
Gepp, AR 72538
Directions: From the east end of 62/412 (bypass) in Mountain Home, travel on 62/412 east to the bridge over Lake Norfork. Continue 9.3 miles and turn left onto AR87, just past service station and the Gepp Post Office, also on your left. Travel on AR87 2.2 miles and turn left onto Twin Oaks Trail, a dirt road that appears to be a driveway to a house with a rock wall. Continue on Twin Oaks Trail, past the house and large metal building with hunting blinds for sale. Continue about 1 mile, curving left to pass in front of the white house with a red roof, over a concrete low-water bridge, and a sign on your right reading “Sweetwater Farms.” Coming out from the woods into a beautiful valley, a gray house with a green roof is on your left. The studio is in the walk-out basement, best accessed by exterior stairs with handrails from the “high side” of the house. Stay left and circle around the house. Park along the circle drive.
“Nature is my biggest source of inspiration,” says Luanne. “I want to convey the beauty of God’s creation.” She is also inspired by the paint and how it mixes and reacts to stimulus. Luanne Stone paints mostly in watercolor but also uses oils and acrylics when she needs a change of pace or has a special subject matter.
Stone has always had an interest in art and majored in art for three years while in college. She eventually went on to learn dental technology. After retiring ten years ago, Stone came back to painting.
Stone’s paintings have been featured in the Area Art Club Exhibits at The Corner Joint, 9th Street Grill and at Southfork Restaurant in Salem. Interested buyers can also call or stop by the studio anytime.
