This still life image is of the entrance to an antique store in Tryon, North Carolina, in the Blue Ridge Mountains. I was attracted to the bright colors and the beautiful carved swan perched on the railing above the Antiques sign.
Tryon is a small mountain town just south of Hendersonville and just north of the South Carolina line. The town calls itself "The Friendliest Town in the South." According to its website, two agricultural industries historically played a major role in helping to shape Tryon’s economy and culture, equestrian activities and vineyards. The Tryon Riding and Hunt Club (TRHC) was formed in 1925 by visionary entrepreneur and region promoter Carter P. Brown. The TRHC has held the famous Block House Steeplechase annually since 1946. Numerous other equestrian organizations have also bloomed in the area’s rich equestrian scene. The Blue Ridge Hunter Jumper Association (BRHJA), the Tryon Hounds, the Foothills Riding Club, the Carolina Carriage Club, Foothills Equestrian Trails Association (FETA) and the Foothills Equestrian Nature Center (FENCE), to name a few, are thriving in the Tryon area.
I am an exhibiting artist in southwest Florida and my art has been exhibited in galleries in Florida, Georgia and North Carolina and is in collections nationwide. I create abstract photography, mixed media photo painting, acrylic mixed media, and acrylic paintings. Many would make great decorative throw pillows or shower curtains. I've even had a couple abstracts made into my personal cell phone covers. Please check out my Facebook page Doodleng Art by Sharon Eng for announcements and more information about my art. This image would be a good selection for business or corporate wall art and decor or in any home.
