Little River, Smoky Mountains, Tennessee

Had a great time camping, hiking and painting in the Smoky Mountains with my husband, his sister and niece from Florida. We stayed at the Elkmont camp grounds right next to the Little River which was very refreshing to swim in. We hiked all around to waterfalls and local sites. David took this photo of me painting the above painting . . . a really concentrating face!  SOLD
