Recent artwork has been inspired by the Appalachian Trail. This 2,189.2 mile historic footpath extends through 14 states from Georgia to Maine along the spine of the Appalachian Mountains. In 2014 I carried a camera and sketchbook in my backpack and was able to summit some of the greatest peaks on the East Coast.
Paintings, limited prints of photographs, postcards and greeting cards are available to purchase. Please contact me directly to inquire about sales. This wilderness oasis is magnificent. You just cannot drive to some of these places. I had to climb mountains, ford rivers and scramble over boulders with my backpack, navigating around snakes, a few bears & all sorts of critters. The sun burned down, it rained, it snowed and I cried. Wow, was every step worth it!
I encourage everyone to learn more about the Appalachian Trail and take a little walk for yourself. The Appalachian Trail Conservancy, based out of Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, has been managing its preservation and maintenance for over 90 years. A direct link to their website is the blue box below. Let's go for a hike together. Happy Trails. I hope to see you out there!
