Spring Paintings from Cherokee County Georgia

Spring means I’ll be road tripping around Georgia to paint our state in all her spring colors! The astounding color of red maples and oak trees in bud seems to me as brilliant as any foliage in the Blue Ridge Mountains in the fall.

Below is a series of pastels from past spring road trips. This spring, I have trips planned from south to north, from the Altamaha River – Georgia’s “Little Amazon” – to the wilds of Rabun Mountain in the north at peak wildflower season. Stay tuned – As always, I’ll be posting work in progress on my studio Facebook page.

Let me know your favorite wild Georgia spots – I love to hear discoveries!
