The real voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes. - Marcel Proust

Smoky Mountain Stream

Last summer, we went for a long drive through the Smokies and stopped to take photos. What a beautiful place. This is based on one of those photos.
I've been feeling so rushed lately, even when I paint, that everything in my life feels like a "quick study." For this one, I wanted to slow down and take my time. It's a combination of brush work and palette knife, 11x14" oils on canvas.


  1. Would love to see more of your landscapes ~
