Misty Creek, Great Smoky Mountains

Misty Creek, 36"x24"
Oil on canvas.

This studio piece was based on some small plein air sketches from a week long backpacking trip in the Cherokee National Forest.

Standing in this stream bed trying to capture the energy and feel of these deep woods was a great experience.
I hope I caught some of that emotion and overwhelming beauty in this untamed place.
This piece is available, to purchase click here.
