Born In the Smokies Canvas Giclee'
: The Johnson Family from Townsend is a traditional mountain family. They let Paul & KatiJane into their lives in the 80’s. This has let Paul share paintings of Lil’ Fannies’ Grandma “Fannie” and “Earnest", and has forged a great friendship, with many cherished memories. Here is Paul’s thoughts about Lil Fannie. “A place where beauty abounds, where innocence and wisdom are mixed like good cornmeal; a place where a window to the past still exists. L'il Fannie was born from a long line of mountain people. She shares the shyness and fierce pride of her forefathers. In a few isolated hills and hollows of east Tennessee, the window is still open." -Paul Murray-
