View Along Old Natchez Trace

This is a just-completed commissioned painting. It is a view of a stretch of road along the historic Old Natchez Trace in Williamson County, TN. Originally an indian trail, then a road during horse-drawn transportation days between Nashville, TN and Natchez, MS. It is now a popular route for bicyclists through scenic horsefarms. This view shows a spot along the Harpeth River where teenagers maintain a popular hangout with a ropeswing and swimming hole.

This painting measures 14x22. It is an oil, painted on stretched linen.
