Doing a little painting on Cades Cove. It's not finished, but I thought I would post up what I've done so far.

are you going to put the massive line of tourons stop dead, but won't use pulloffs, so they can keep looking at one deer?


LOL, j/k, looks great

looking good Blue.....wish I had some kind of artistic talent but alas that seems to be left for others............we have a gentleman at church who paints and you sometimes have to look twice to see if it is a photo or painting. Such a blessing to be able to capture a portion of God's creations on canvas.....

make sure you post when you complete it.....

Thanks, Bob. Will do. I have picked it up by harrassing the crap out of professional artists on Facebook!:biggrin: (Bob White is a really nice guy by the way...I would have told me to get lost by now!). I love good artwork of nature. Bob White, Diane Michlen, Mike Savlen etc. I plan on putting in a Bob White quail (assuming they are native to Cades Cove...I have to look it up), but we will see how it goes. So far, I only know certain things and others I have to figure out via making mistakes, so this may never get finished, only painted over and tried again...and again. If it turns out decent, I will post more. Take Care.

Thanks! Yeah I am thankful for the little ability that I have. I love the outdoors and I love to paint it.

You're forgetting the most important naturalist ever, BRF. Three words: Bob Friggin' Ross. Your influences are solid, but let's face it, none of them dominated public television. Now, go "beat the Devil" out of that fan brush, and make sure your rock, tree, or bird "lives right.... there." It's your world, BRF. You can do anything you like. Shoot, heck, and why not.

Looks great Dwayne! Looks kind of like the mountains behind the Abrams creek trailhead area. Keep em coming!

I am going to have to start painting these things quicker and in less detail if I am going to match Mr. Ross's abilities.;)

Thanks! Here's the lastest (still have to add trees in the foreground, grass, flowers, maybe a bird etc)

A little more progress (my camera is cheap so it doesn't look so good, but you get a general idea).

Well, it's finished. I will try and put a better pic up later using my sister in laws camera because mine is so cheap, but here it is (it's already sold too:biggrin:)

Wow very nice. I like the way the field, grass, and big oak tree look out there very much like spots in the cove.

Thanks! It's was a ton of fun to paint. Now I have all the hobbies I need: Fly fishing, Tying and Painting. :biggrin: (can you tell I never had kids?)

Yeah, I don't have any kids either so I get too involved in everything also. I've always wanted to try my hand at painting but it will have to wait for a long while. I've got a couple two many irons in the fire as it is.
