Norris Mountain

Paintings, originals and reproductions, framed and unframed – the art, life and spirit of Cades Cove, priced for every budget. My gallery is located in Townsend’s Trillium Cove, just a couple miles from the Cades Cove entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. In my youth I dreamed of someday becoming a park or forestry ranger and living amongst its wonders every day. Unfortunately it was never to be. In later years I found a second love in painting the scenic wonders of the Smokies, with an emphasis on Cades Cove. My customers tell me that I have captured the mood of the Cove very well. I hope you will agree. My gallery is open year-round, always on weekends.
