When I moved to Gatlinburg around 3 1/2 years ago, I wouldn’t live anywhere without a mountain top view.  After several years up here, we are contemplating building a Storage Container house, and I really think I’m going to choose to live on the water this time–the river to be exact.  And, I promise it isn’t because of the abundance of River Trout, although they are yummy eats.

Check out this Call for Entries for the 2010 Susquehanna International Fine Art Competition whose theme is River Art this year.  There is no entry fee so buy a rod and reel and head to the river for a little “research.”  Take a look!
