Monteagle Assembly of Homes

This is one of the beautiful Victorian homes in the Monteagle Sunday School Assembly of Homes. The house next to it was built in 1882. I'm not sure when this house was built. I loved the flags out front. The sun kept going in and out, we thought it was going to rain, then it would get really windy and then the sun would come out again. It was so quiet and peaceful just sitting there and painting all afternoon. I'll think of that when I look at this painting.

Oldest House in Grundy County

Here is another painting from my trip to Monteagle. This is the house of a friend, Sheila, who owns the oldest house in Grundy County, Tennessee. The photo is washed out but if you look closely you can see the porch swing. Her brother was visiting so I painted him in the swing. He is talking to a contractor who will repair the house. There are all sorts of stuff sitting on the porch including an old wooden door with a white star and rabbit on it. She is very generous and lets us paint on her property and I decided to paint her house and huge sugar maple tree. If you have ever been in Tennessee, you have seen the advertising to See Rock City. I had to take a photo of Sheila's birdhouse! Enjoy!

Artists' Retreat

I've been to Monteagle for an artists' retreat. Seven artists from the Atlanta area spent five days at Monteagle painting the beautiful landscape of the Tennessee mountains. Here is a pastel I started. It is 12" x 18" on Wallis sanded paper.
