The Chestatee on Frog Hollow Road
The Chestatee on Frog Hollow Road
Oil  8x10
This scene is of the Chestatee River in Dahlonega, Georgia at the end of a private road called Frog Hollow.  I love the name and love the scenery.  The rapids were so beautiful and challenging to paint, especially since this was my first attempt (2 years ago) at painting moving water and plein aire painting (painting on location).  I had lots of hurdles to overcome that day, but I learned a lot.  North Georgia has so many beautiful scenes like this just waiting to be painted. 
Thank you for visiting today.  Have a wonderful week. 


  1. this is your first attempt?! I'm impressed, you'd better get back there! I like your subtle color palette and diagonal composition- very nice!

    1. Thank you Mary. Now is a good time to pursue more outdoor painting and enjoy this beautiful weather. Happy painting!
