“The early fall colors of Cataloochee Valley and the lacy leaves of the sycamore tree are the inspiration for this 24×30-inch painting. The mountains often fulfill Robin’s artistic calling,” says photographer Chris Rohwer of his painter wife.
Settled in the early 19th century, the Cataloochee Valley’s remoteness limits the number of visitors. It sits below some of the most rugged mountains in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and is home to new resident elk on the North Carolina side of the park.
Photographer Chris and painter Robin Rohwer each week strive to share a painting or photograph that captured their interest in hopes that it will also capture yours. They have a small studio and gallery in the Emporium Center in downtown Knoxville where you can stop and see their work. Check ahead to see when they will be there, as they may be off looking for more inspiration. Their website is www.ChristopherRobinArts.com. Email them at ChristopherRobinArts@gmail.com.
