75th Anniversary of the Smokey Mountains

The Knoxville Arts Alliance had a call to arts for the 75th Anniversary of the Smokey Mountains in 2009.  This was my 'call back' to the arts from the heart.  An overlook in Cades Cove is the inspiration for this colorful and bold FABstract.  Sticks from Cades Cove were used in this mixed media painting.  P.E.N. Studio didn't win any awards or honorable mentions with this piece.  However, I had the best exposure for the evening.  The presentation of awards were announced in front of my painting.  

Sometimes in life the simple things are more than you can imagine or ask for.  I am blessed.

My Smokey Mountain Sanctuary - Mixed Media - Al Fresco technique utilized with gold/silver leaf accents.  54X32 Gallery wrapped canvas over a custom built frame. Art from the ♥ of Tennessee ♥ 

Thanks for Visiting!
