east tennessee life

©reneeharkerart 2020

I love living in East Tennessee. There is so much beauty everywhere you look. I’ve been capturing that beauty in photographs for years by either leaving early for work so I could watch the sun rise over the lake or taking walks on my lunch breaks just to be out in nature. I’m happiest when I’m on a hike or going someplace I’ve never been. I feel blessed to be surrounded by it all. I decided to retire early from my regular job so I could enjoy myself while I’m still young enough to do so. One of the things I’ve wanted to do for a long time is to learn how to paint on canvas. I absolutely love oil painting. All of those photos I’ve taken over the years have become my inspiration. I’m hoping to improve over time. I hope others will see the beauty that I see here in east Tennessee.
