Tennessee Road Trip

Hopefully there are a few of you who noticed that I didn't post a painting this week. Our family took an old fashioned family road trip vacation down to Tennessee this past week. We really had a great time and it was so much fun to see the sites, culture and people down south. We were primarily in Nashville and Memphis and they are two very different cities. I'm wondering if all of us Yankees should start calling each other "darlin" and "hon". Southern hospitality was very nice to experience, and I have to say that the food was wonderful too.

I've downloaded my photos and it looks like I limited myself to only 402 shots. I could have shot a bunch more, but I showed some restraint mostly due to the fact that I didn't have enough memory cards for my camera. My wife and boys always are patient with me while I'm shooting photos of everything in sight, no matter how odd it may seem to most people. They have grown accustom to my ways. Below you'll find 4 of the 402 pictures. There could be some paintings coming out of our trip. Y'all stay tuned...

  1. Looks very exotic to this westerner! Looking forward to seeing your new paintings!

  2. What fun! Love the mix of shots. So perfectly captures American family time and that section of the country. Think your idea to adopt darling and hon has merit. I'm mid-atlantic (Maryland), and we could use a dose of that southern hospitality, too :-)

  3. I laughed a little when I read about your family getting used to your ways. My daughters are always .....awwwwwwwwwwwww dad, why are you taking pictures of that???? We have our reasons kids! That looks like it was a great trip.
