Betsy and I spent the Thanksgiving Weekend in 2011 in the Shenandoah National Forest, enjoying Skyline Drive and the beautiful scenery it presented.  We stayed in Skyland, venturing out each day to explore the area.  An early morning stop at Hazel Mountain Overlook along Skyline Drive allowed me to capture the photo upon which this watercolor is based.

When Betsy and I went to Texas in September, we broke up the trip by stopping at Noccalula Falls Park in Gadsen, Alabama.  We stopped to see the waterfall, but we also spotted a beautiful little wedding chapel.  This painting is based on a photo I took while walking through the park.
