Virginia E. Woods "Ginny" Age 76 of Bellevue, died August 3, after a long courageous battle with cancer.

Virginia's love of life was expressed as a commercial artist. For the past 35 years, her paintings have appeared in multiple shows and received numerous awards, including Dogwood Artist of the Year. Her work is currently displayed at Liz-Beth Art Gallery in Knoxville. As a painter adept at still life, her portfolio contains detailed, gentle images of nature in both oil and watercolor. Virginia's most recent works were unique studies in collage utilizing rice papters. In her later years, she was inspired by the natural beauty near her log cabin home on Watts Bar Lake in Ten Mile. Other loves included family, friends, word puzzles, gardening, cooking thoughtful conversations, sunrises, fishing, and her cat Veronica.
