Emerts Cove is located about 10 miles or so from Gatlinburg, Tennessee. I spent many hours there as I had a friend living nearby. The mountain in the background is Newfound Gap and the parkway crosses it from Cherokee to Gatlinburg, a beautiful drive but crowded in the summer months. I painted this scene on location and it was featured on one of our “Painting and Travel” episodes for PBS.
