Holiday Getaway

Hurriedly paddling my sea-kayak beyond proximity limitations annunciated by the Cruise Ship Director, I found this secluded bay to explore. Or, so the story goes.

Actually, I created this digital landscape artwork overnight, where it took 6 hours to render, making several final adjustments this morning.

It’s available on a variety of great gift & apparel items, in these shops:

Thanks for visiting!

Roadside Beauty

There are several areas along the road in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park with wonderful views, such as this spot. If you’d rather not have to travel for such sights, you could instead pick out a print from any of my shops and enjoy this view in your home, all year long!

Luftee Overlook

A morning sun rises over the Smoky Mountains, as seen from Luftee Overlook, located near Newfound Gap & Clingmans Dome. You can visit my gallery to find many fine prints available, perfect for a wall in your home, at the office, or as a gift to give to family and/or friends.

Andrews Bald

Located near Clingmans Dome in North Carolina, Andrews Bald is the highest elevation grassy meadow in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

The area was named for Andres Thompson, a cattle herder, who, in the 1840’s, brought livestock up the mountain to graze on hillsides.

Though less than 4 miles out and back, the trail is rated as moderately difficult due to an elevation change of 1200-feet. This is especially evident upon return, as the hike is entirely uphill.

If you’re interested in adding an accent piece to an empty wall in your home or place of employment, you can find many prints available in my gallery – framed, canvas, art, metal, wood, poster, acrylic and tapestries.

Hope to see you soon ~ thanks for stopping by!

Clingmans Dome

Located in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park along the state line between North Carolina and Tennessee, Clingmans Dome is a popular tourist destination. So much so, that on any given good-weather day, visitors may observe vehicles with license plates from 25 or more states.

From the parking area, it’s a short 1/2 mile hike along a paved trail, though the grade is quite steep. As such, there are several benches along the way on which to rest. There’s also a gift shop & restrooms.

Standing 6,643-feet tall, Clingmans Dome is both the tallest mountain in the park and in the state of Tennessee. It’s also the highest point along the 2,192-mile Appalachian Trail, and the third tallest mountain (after Mount Mitchell and Mount Craig) east of the Mississippi River. Lastly, it’s the 17th tallest mountain in the United States of America.

If you’d be interested in a fine print, you can see more in my gallery.

More specifically, yesterday morning.

Fog Over Wears Valley

This black and white morning photograph was taken along the (new) Foothills Parkway, highlighting a stormy sky over the Smoky Mountains, with fog below in the town of Wears Valley, Tennessee. A variety of prints are available in my gallery. Thanks for stopping by!

Cades Cove

Here’s another view of Cades Cove, as photographed from my vehicle along the roadside. This historical region was home to early European settlers, and features several old churches, cabins and a grist mill. Visitors might also encounter bears, prevalent within this verdant valley, along the 11-mile (one way) scenic drive. You can find prints in my gallery, which make a great gift-giving idea, as well as an excellent accent piece for your home or office. Thanks for stopping by!
