Familiar Path

This is #48 of my 100 painting project. It is a late summer view of the carriage trail at Cone Manor on the Blue Ridge Parkway. This old carriage trail is one of our favorite locations to hike and sketch. From here the trail dips under the parkway and then climbs up a hill where you can see Grandfather Mountain out across a mountain pastoral view. I wish I could take you there, you would love it.

I was just there last week! So beautiful and peaceful. I can see why he wanted to build a house there. I pictured them sitting in wicker furniture on the porch having tea and admiring the view down the valley. Breathtaking. This painting is so beautiful and catches the feeling perfectly.

I know this could be a common scene for you, but it's just breathtaking! I think a successful artist is when he/she's able to draw attention with his/her work and make people want to go to that place in the picture... =) And yes, I'd like to go there Ann!
