Hollett-Bazouzi demonstrates painting technique.Fluvanna Art Association (FAA) members couldn’t have asked for a more perfect fall day at the Thistle Gate Vineyard on Oct.14 to learn from successful landscape and plein air artist, Linda Hollett-Bazouzi.

Hollett-Bazouzi discussed her approach to painting outdoors, demonstrating what she sees and how she translates it to her canvas. Hollett-Bazouzi has been painting for 11 years. In that time she learned what it takes to be successful at what she does. Rather than resting on past accomplishments, she continues to explore and seek out challenges to make her a stronger artist.

The Flying Fluco boys’ basketball team is under the tutelage of Jason Davis this season. Longtime Coach Munro Rateau has retired, and Davis, his assistant for many years, is now in charge. Rateau had a very successful run, but last year was a down year. Most of the starters last season were seniors, and the top underclassman on last year’s team has transferred out.

So Coach Davis will be fielding a team that is young and fairly inexperienced. The competition will be tough. The team opened its season at home on Nov. 29, hosting a highly regarded Waynesboro squad. On Tuesday, Dec. 6, they will host another powerhouse when they take on Western Albemarle.
