    Description

    In 1998, my husband and I along with our twelve year old son relocated to North Carolina because we wanted more and we dared to dream we could find it.  Not more in abundance or material possessions, more quality in life which required us to live differently than we had in the past.   It took great courage to leave the familiar; to leave all we had ever known.  We go back from time to time because we have loved ones there but we are always reminded of why we left.  Once upon going home from one such visit I was awe-struck in what I saw as we approached the Smoky Mountains on Interstate 40.  It was so ethereal like a whole other world out in front of us and it reminded me once again of the blessing I found in letting go and seeking more which has become “Home”.

    The colors, light and composition are yummy

    Excellent portrait reflecting the mood of the model

    This painting brings to mind how fragile our environment is. On a recent hike in Lake Tahoe forest, saw how bark beetles have such a great effect on the forest.

    Nice color, composition and mood, with wonderful brushstrokes! Love it!

    Very believable use of color. Painterly brushstrokes and the glow of the sun through the tree keeps the viewer in the painting.
