Merrick Palmer Artist.
I am originally from the town of Jasper in Pickens County Georgia and currently reside in Gilmer County Georgia.
My works are inspired by growing up in the Mountains of North Georgia, Southeast Tennessee and Southwest North Carolina including the Great Smoky Mountains and national forest areas.
Acrylic and oil paintings of Appalachian scenery particularly mountains, rolling hills and ridges of the southern blue ridge, great valley (Georgia & Tennessee) and northern piedmont.
In addition physical features of these areas inspire me. Waterfalls, creeks, deep forest and dramatic rock formations. Add to that structures particularly those from days gone by such as old houses including log cabins, dirt roads, barns and covered bridges make for endless subjects.
My paintings tends to realistic but not photographic in style. Most of my works are not of a specific place but rather inspired by actual locations I have seen in my life. A few are of a actual location. I do commissioned
paintings based on photos sent to me or personally going to location to take photos. Commissions can be done in literal style or in specified variations to the subject.
I am on Facebook with both my own page and Southern Appalachian Reflections a page which displays some of my earlier works.
