Smoky Mountain River
I'm sure this river has a name but I don't remember it. I think I would need at least a week of sketching moving water before I would be satisfied with any of the results. This proved to be a real challenge. Despite the difficulties it will go down as one of my favorite sketching experiences. Just sitting in the NOISE of nature was a welcome relief from the noise of humanity. I did feel a little on edge because I had been told by a fly fisherman that a bear had been seen earlier. I figured that must be a rare occurrence..... and then ten minutes later I came up on a mama bear and her two cubs....... thankfully I was in my vehicle at the time!
