SMILE AGAIN!

Jean Kitts loved to smile but, over the years, she became self-conscious about her teeth. Then she went to see Dr. Dan Thompson and he changed her life. Now the proud owner of dental implants, Jean has the confidence and self-esteem that had been missing for a long time. Jean proudly states, “I can’t thank Dr. Dan and his wonderful staff enough. He gave me my smile back and I just love it.”

OUR FIRST WEST KNOXVILLE LIFESTYLE READERS’ CHOICE AWARDS. The process began in October with the nomination round, when we asked our readers to nominate their favorite local businesses in 25 different categories. The top five nominees from each category then moved on to the voting round, when our readers were asked to vote for the best of the best. Now, in this special issue, the winners are being shared with you, our readers. Thank you to all who participated in the nomination and voting rounds. One of our missions is for West Knoxville Lifestyle to be a voice for the community, and I can think of no better example than providing a platform for you to honor our best local businesses. If you missed out on the voting this year, don’t worry. Our Readers’ Choice Awards are to be an annual event. Look for the nomination round to begin again in the fall. And, for those businesses who didn’t win this year, or perhaps didn’t get nominated, there’s always next year, as you’ve got an entire year to show our readers why they should vote for your business.

T A O A X


VASILIY NASONOV TAUGHT HIMSELF LAW, AND HIS FRIENDS AND FAMILY CAME TO HIM FOR ADVICE. He taught himself fashion, and he sewed for his wife and children. He taught himself oil painting, and, although he never knew it, he taught at least one granddaughter how to live. “Once only, I saw one painting,” native Russian and area resident Inna Nasonova Knox says. “It was a sailing boat in a storm.” She pauses to look back on her childhood. “I don’t know where it went after my grandmother died.” She was just like the grandfather she never met: an artist. As a preschooler, she didn’t want to go out to play with the other kids. “I would go off like a siren if anyone tried to make me leave my drawings,” she says. “If I would get a pack of paper my father would bring, it was like a holiday gift.” She graduated from Art College in Kazan and went on to St. Petersburg Art University Muhinoi. “It was one of the most famous colleges in the country,” she says. “It was very, very hard to get into. I was accepted into interior design.” To support herself, she painted. “I was supporting myself 100 percent by art—selling my paintings. I had so much homework that I was painting only as much as I needed to live.” A nearby cathedral, the ornate and expansive Savior on the Spilled Blood Church, was her best-seller. “We didn’t do prints,” Inna says. “We didn’t use that technology. When I was running low on cash, I would paint another. It was a tourist area by the church. I ended up with all kinds of money—Japanese, German, French—but I needed rubles.” She graduated and took a job as a front desk assistant and fashion consultant. She moved to the U.S. in 2000. In Wisconsin, she tried oils for the first time and never looked back. Now Inna is happily ensconced in her studio and classroom at her husband, John Knox’s, business building on Watt Road. Her old moneymaker, "Savior on the Blood Church," hangs in the hallway. She estimates she’s sold about 400 paintings and prints over the last few decades, including landscapes, cityscapes, animals and portraits. Does painting make her feel good? “I don’t know. Not painting doesn’t make me feel good. It’s part of my nature. It’s what I do. “I paint fast,” she says pointing to a barn in Townsend she did with the plein air group she belongs to. She prefers a palette knife over a brush and many of her paintings have been completely done with a knife. In 2015, she won sponsor’s choice in plein air competition at the Dogwood Arts Festival. During the 2017 Knoxville Museum of Art plein air competition, she sold three immediately. “I sell in Nashville at York and Friends and at Bennett Gallery,” she says. “I sell here in Knoxville on Gay Street in the Art Market. I’m a member of Art Guilt of Tellico Village and Art & Culture Alliances, and also do commission work. Portraits of people or animals are pretty much word-of-mouth. “In the last six months, I’ve started focusing on Knoxville urban scenes,” she says. “At first I was taking out people and cars, but then I decided I wanted to put people, cars and signs in. I like to put life and time in. I like to really detail the fashion people are wearing— purses, umbrellas and shoes. In 100 years, my great-grandchildren will say ‘Look at that!’” She also offers painting classes for groups of four or more women. For more information, call 865.766.9687 or visit InnaNasonova.com.

LOVING THE COMMUNITY

LO V E K N O X V I L L E ARTICLE CHRISTINE DERR VALENTINE’S DAY IS SURE TO BRING HEARTS, CANDY AND FLOWERS TO THE FOREFRONT. Show love to all the people in your life this month: your significant other, family, pet and community. BEST DATE SPOTS Although celebrating on Valentine’s Day itself is fun, the love can extend beyond one day. Try doing a little something special for your loved one in the days leading up to and after the big day, such as small notes of encouragement, a special dinner out at their favorite place or an unexpected treat delivery in the middle of the day. For the special day itself, visit a favorite restaurant or try somewhere new. The Peter Kern Library at the Oliver Hotel has literary cocktails in a speakeasy setting for the literary history buff, while Sweet P’s offers two locations full of delicious barbecue for the future pitmaster. Knox Mason produces a diverse menu for the farm-to-table fan, while Cru Bistro and Wine Bar provides delicious appetizers and entrees.

FAMILY The traditions you create for your children become the memories they cherish as adults. From giving them a little something to make them feel special to taking the whole family out for a day of fun, break the winter dreariness cycle and get some quality family time in. If the weather isn’t cooperating, head indoors for fun. Main Event offers something for every member of your family, including laser tag, bowling, an arcade, restaurant, suspended obstacle course and a full bar. If you’re looking for a fun, educational experience, try The Muse, Knoxville’s children’s museum. With an indoor play area for little ones and science experiments for big kids, there’s something interesting for every age. If an outing isn’t in the budget, consider some of your favorite activities as a kid. Build a pillow fort, play hide and seek or snuggle up with popcorn and hot chocolate to watch a childhood classic. PETS Valentine’s Day is just an excuse to love on your furry friend. While buying sweet treats or a new toy is fun, what they really want is your time. You can take your furry friend with you into some stores; Union Avenue Books, Mast General Store and pet stores are open to well-behaved furry friends. Restaurants with patios often allow pets as well; Knoxville maintains a list of dog-friendly patio dining at KnoxvilleTN.gov If our weather veers toward temperate instead of icy, head to your favorite dog park. Victor Ashe offers a dog area with an obstacle course. Knoxville’s greenways and Ijams Nature Center are pet-friendly. PetSafe Village Dog Park is located downtown, the perfect setup for a doggy day of fun. If you’re looking for someone to love, adopt a pet from Knoxville’s animal shelter or humane society. If you aren’t ready to commit, try volunteering at the animal shelter. COMMUNITY West Knoxville provides many wonderful activities and opportunities; how can we give back in this season of love? Give blood: You can make a big impact in your community by donating blood. Visit MedicBlood.com to make an appointment or find a blood drive. Volunteer: Giving your time can change someone’s life.

at a church, school, food bank, etc. Think about what interests you, and you’ll easily find an organization that would appreciate your time and knowledge. Donate: Find a cause you believe in, and support it. Whether you donate financially or with new or gently used items, visit your cause’s website to find their specific needs. Start a kindness trend: Try paying for the person behind you in line at the coffee shop or send notes of kindness to a neighbor. Smile at everyone you see, say please and thank you to those in the service industry and have a goal of spreading kindness everywhere you go. Pick up litter: On your next hike or adventure down the greenways, take a plastic bag and gloves and pick up litter as you go. Every little bit helps to keep our city green and beautiful. Frequent locally owned businesses: Support the local economy by shopping locally. You’ll meet new people doing business in person while getting what you need and support your community at the same time. This Valentine’s Day, take the time to think of the meaning behind the candy hearts and red carnations: actively demonstrating love to your family, friends, pets and community.

FINANCIAL BUZZ

PREVENT

ARTICLE MELISSA BALLARD, CFP

PROGRESS PARALYSIS WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR FINANCIAL GOALS, CONSIDER IMPLEMENTING THESE THREE STEPS

NEARLY EVERYONE AGREES: THE MORE CHOICES, THE BETTER. From restaurants to shops to home furnishings, people relish having lots of options. But, too many choices can also lead to decision fatigue, indecision and procrastination, especially concerning personal finances. The noise emanating from financial companies, who try to convince you their product is better than all the rest and is the missing piece you need to reach your financial goals, can be overwhelming. After hearing all of this, and feeling a bit overwhelmed by information overload, many choose the easiest and least stressful option: do nothing and put planning for their financial future off. It doesn’t have to be this way. Consider implementing the following three steps to avoid progress paralysis.   PRIORITIZE  As a Chinese proverb says, a long journey begins with the first step. What is your journey and where is your destination? We all have many financial goals we want to accomplish, from funding retirement to college for children to special vacations. To avoid being overwhelmed by wanting to accomplish them all, prioritize them by defining your top few goals for the next year. Be specific. For instance, next year I want to begin to save monthly the amount necessary to fund my child’s college education at a four-year public institution. This specificity will empower you to set a course to begin accomplishing your goal.  FOCUS ON THE FUNDAMENTALS AND CREATE POSITIVE MOMENTUM  It can be easy to get bogged down in the minutia of financial decisions. What college plan should I invest in? What funds should I use? How often should I review the investments? While these are important considerations, the most important and impactful decision is implementing the discipline to save on a regular basis. This is the fundamental building block of any successful financial plan. Focus on mastering the discipline of saving for a specific goal, creating positive momentum to fuel your desire to accomplish the next goal.  DON’T LET THE DESIRE FOR PERFECTION IMPAIR INCREMENTAL PROGRESS  With many financial goals to choose from, it can be natural to want to aim for perfection and fully fund each goal all at once. This may not be possible nor the most prudent approach. Even if you cannot fully fund all your goals initially, the process of implementing a regular savings plan and making incremental progress toward your goals is rewarding and empowering. Don’t let the desire for perfection prevent you from making incremental progress.
