After the fires in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park (Gatlinburg area) my husband and I went to Cades Cove. We needed to reassure ourselves that everything is - eventually - going to be okay.
This is the result. I've always been drawn to the old Primitive Baptist Church in the cove, but never like I was this day.
This began as an image transfer of my own original photography, taken that day. Then, I rendered over that in water soluble pencil, graphite, watercolors and gesso until the image transfer was all but obliterated. Lastly, I scanned that, and added some finishing touches digitally (adding texture, removing smudges and cropping out some tourists).
Available in 8x8" prints and 10x10" prints on my signature beautiful, archival quality textured paper.
Each print is titled and signed on the back in graphite.
