After the Rain - Landscape by C. Frederick Lawrenson
  After the Rain  (2014)
Subject: Landscape
Dimensions (inches): 18 x 38
Medium: Acrylic on Masonite
Description: In the summer of 2010 we went for a hike with our daughter Kristin and her husband Stewart on a section of the Appalachian Trial in the Smoky Mountains. This part of the trail follows closely the Tennessee-North Carolina border and leads to this huge rock outcropping known as 'Charlie's Bunion.' The view was spectacular, yet a little disappointing, because a blight had killed about one third of the hemlock trees. This is not the first blight to affect the forestland of the Smoky Mountains. In 1901 a blight was accidentally introduced to this area, and by the 1950's it had wiped out most of the American Chestnut trees in the Eastern U.S. Now the hemlocks that remained and thrived are being threatened by the hemlock wooly adelgid. I decided to paint this scene as I imagined it would have looked around 1900 before any blight occurred, with fog rising up from the valley streams, on a warm humid day, after a rain.
