A Life of Quiet Inspiration

 I have been thinking of creating some Smoky Mountains photos with words of inspiration for some time. These four are my first offerings.  All four are currently hanging in the Gatlinburg Gallery, mounted on frameless 8×12 floats. However, they could be printed and framed in any of my standard sizes.

The photo above is a sunset at Morton Overlook with my variation on Thoreau’s comment about “lives of quiet desperation.”  I like my quote better!

Smoky Mountain Inspiration

The image above is Cades Cove on a beautiful summer afternoon with a quote paraphrased from John Muir.

The photo below is one of my favorite “deep woods” pictures, with a quote from the poet, Lord Byron.

Pleasure of the Pathless Woods

 Finally, the picture below is my best seller, with one of my own thoughts added.

If you’re traveling or vacationing in the Gatlinburg area, please stop in to see the complete display of Smoky Mountains photos at the William Britten Gallery.  The Gallery is located on the historic Arts and Crafts trail, in the Morning Mist Village shopping area along Glades Rd.  In addition to framed and matted prints, there are magnets, mugs and notecards for you to find a special Smokies memory to take home.
