Smoky Mountain Sunset
Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and the Great Smoky Mountains hold many happy and fun memories for me and for our family and dear friends...professional conferences at the beautiful Park Vista, walking the streets of downtown Gatlingburg, enjoying Dollywood, the Wilderness, the Art District and so many other wonderful places. My heart goes out to all who are battling the fires that will forever change the face of this beautiful part of Tennessee.
Tennesseans are tough and resilient, yet we are heart broken.
As I painted this 10x20 acrylic on canvas, I whispered prayers for all who have lost their homes, businesses, lives and family members. For all those there (even our own Mountain City fire fighters) to help, prayers are lifted for you.
As I said on my home page, it has been a beautiful fall and I have enjoyed painting pumpkins. I have created four pumpkin paintings and then this one that I actually did for myself. It is displayed and enjoyed in my kitchen and can remain there for all seasons in my cabin setting. It's a little different with the color choices and impressionist qualities. Hope you like it.
