The Chattahoochee River is an essential part of Atlanta! Kayaking, swimming, tubing, picnics, porches, docks, summer, winter... everyone seems to have good memories here! I love this piece of river flowing through Atlanta's backyard and am grateful for the good times it has hosted in all seasons.
After hiking and photographing in each location, I created the "Georgia Nature and Trails" series. Growing up in Georgia, I had visited many of these spots before, but revisiting them and really taking the time to study and paint them gave them new meaning to me and a new appreciation that I was raised to appreciate my natural surroundings. This series of paintings depicts some of my favorite Georgia hiking spots including Sweetwater Creek, Arabia Mountain, and the Chattahoochee National Forest.
