S'MORES

This painting tells of a 1987 car-camping trip in the Great Smoky Mountains, but it is also meant to express the enhanced senses and emotions that we experience in a tree-scented, birdsong-filled, naturally beautiful setting such as this.  The clean air, the scary unknown that begins just over there in the woods, and (perhaps) the soreness of your hiking muscles.  Making supper as the twilight fades.  All of these things make life sweeter.  Food is better after effort, and toasted marshmallows are best over a camp fire, with your buddies.
