A week in Cashiers, NC

I painted 'Summer Evening' during my trip to Cashiers NC last week.  There was a light rain falling at the time, and it sure was a relief from the hot weather the previous few days.  This is a very beauiful area, and right now, almost every roadside and forest area is covered with large flowering mountain laurels. Quite a sight.  I've included some photos, which I hope to use as references for some studio paintings.   I had a great week and was happy to sell five of my pieces painted during the week.

I sold a painting i did of this view, and didnt get a chance to photograph the painting, so I went back later and took this photo, hoping to paint it again at home. There was brighter sun and puffy clouds around when i painted it; here it's a bit overcast and not as colorful.

a couple local waterfalls, only about 5 minutes from town......Silver Run Falls,and   Slippery Rock you could guess , Slippery Rock is essentially a natural waterslide........looked like fun...
Thanks for checking out my blog.  So long for now!
