The Appalachians and the Great Smoky Mountains continue to be a source of inspiration for Kelley’s naturescapes that capture the ever-changing atmosphere in her well-known mountain and mist paintings. Her latest series is Water Lilies painted in oil on linen and canvas. The paintings will be exhibited at Gallery 86 in downtown Waynesville with The Master Artists show through October.
