Cades Cove Sentry

Cades Cove Sentry     Oil     14 x 18    

Loved the strength of this magnificent tree in the open sunlit field. The dramatic clouds framed it beautifully and I realized during the painting process how significant each defined the other. We could not see the tree boughs blowing in the breeze clearly without the bright backlighting of the clouds. I see a larger painting in this landscape setting. Loved our day in the Smoky Mts.
