I've been on hiatus, checking out the peak of Autumn color in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. We camped out for 3 nights (one of them VERY rainy) and took in the sights - saw 5 (yes, 5!) black bears - 3 adult and 2 cubs, a number of deer, chipmunks and squirrels. One deer wandered very near our campsite this morning, and we watched one squirrel repair it's nest right above our tent site, too. I'll be back with more sketches and paintings soon!
