“Smoky Mountain Blues”

(Prints available)

Giclee Prints Available - See Below


We were searching for waterfalls. My husband had read an article about a place in North Carolina where you could drive under a waterfall. Couldn't be that hard to find, right? We drove for five hours and never found the waterfall - at least not that trip. We later returned and saw it and another one that were totally awesome - but that's another painting yet to come.

What I found on that first trip was a breathtaking view of the Great Smoky Mountains near Cherokee, North Carolina. I snapped a few pictures and went to work. Some scenes just beg to be painted.

The Queen Anne's Lace in the foreground wasn't there where I took the pictures, but it is one of the countless species of flora in the Smokies, and I thought the splash of white was what it needed. 

I've been teaching my husband's nephew to paint this past year, and this is the one we started with. He's really quite talented and will someday be an artist to be watched. His version of this painting took first prize in the county fair. Congratulations Robbey!
