See the beauty in places forgotten...

This large piece was painted as a gift for another true friend to the artist, his wife and the citizens of Tennessee.  It depicts several things that are important in his life and was intended to recognize him for his career of service and dedication to the legal community, the Great Smoky Mountains, and people.

This 12X16 painting depicts the approach to the summit of Mount LeConte near the junction of the Upper Alum Cave and Rainbow Falls trails.  This scene was captured on the artist's hike with his now wife, Theresa, to LeConte in 2008 which included a Cliff Tops engagement!

This original oil and acrylic painting is the second in a series of red barns.   It depicts a winter view of a barn on Old Troy Road in Troy, Tennessee.  "Theresa's Barn II" is not for sale.

The Wonderland Hotel was built in 1912 in the former logging area around Elkmont between Gatlinburg and Townsend, Tennessee.
Originally accessible only by foot, horseback and logging train, it became a popular weekend and summer resort destination in the
1920’s when a roadway was built into the area.  Also in the 20’s (and 30's) the land around the Wonderland was sold to make way for the Great Smoky MountainsNational Park.  After 80 years of operation, it was closed in 1992.  The artist stayed there as a child and frequently visited this structure that continues to haunt him to this day.  It is depicted here, in watercolour,  as it appeared just following its abandonment.  Limited edition (300) prints are available for $60 plain or $100 framed in barnwood. The original is not for sale.
