West Knoxville, Knoxville, Tennesse. This location in Knoxville is growing like a weed. Because of the expansion, West Knoxville contains both today’s growth (new residental housing and commercial businesses) and yesterday’s country. My acrylic painting represents a piece of yesterday’s country.

In the area of Kingston Pike and Cedar Bluff Road, in West Knoxville, are three fields used to produce hay. This is one of those fields. As you can see, the Hampton Inn Hotel can be seen beyond the red house, with a slight visual of businesses to the viewer’s left, in the picture’s background. What cannot be seen from this perspective is the I-40 Interstate. Westbound I-40 heads towards Nashville, TN; eastbound goes in the direction of the Smoky Mountains and Asheville, NC.

Back to the painting: One quarter mile either direction past this hay field is found shopping centers with restaurants, stores, theaters, and other types of commercial enterprises – not to mention residental areas. All around West Knoxville are found spots of a llttle bit of country. I painted this representation because one day these hay fields will become a part of the continued expansion. Painting representations of locations is a way of preserving what’s left of “the good ol’ days.” This is our history; and, though the landscape changes, we can remember “from whence we came.”

This acrylic painting was done on a 16″×20″ canvas… hope you enjoy the work!

As an artist I enjoy painting and photographing segments of rural life. Country living became a new world for me back in the sixties when we moved from Chicago, Illinois to East Tennessee. I want to capture what I now see before country living vanishes… at least in my area!

    This reminds me of the Easton Corbin song, A Little More Country Than That. A wonderful picture, Bob.

  • Thank you Lori….and that’s a good one!!! I’ve not thought about any songs to fit the painting. You’ve picked a dandy! Have you considered writing lyrics, lol!

    The lyrics would make a great addition to a country picture, ☺
