Local artist RJ McNall has enjoyed a passionate love of the Smoky's since childhood. She lives and works in her cabin nestled in a valley, surrounded by inspiration.
Her medium is oil on canvas from on site sketches or photos.
Most of her landscapes are of favorite places in The Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
With time, oil paint and brush strokes, she conveys a deep respect for the unique beauty God has bestowed on this region. 'These mountains are so special, they embrace us, shelter us and comfort us', say's McNall. This is apparent in her work.
