About the Artist
"Spencer Hudson taught English and coached football and other sports in high school for twenty-two years. He taught and coached at Young High School in Knoxville, Tennessee, McMinn County High School in Athens, Tennessee, Putnam County High school in Cookeville Tn. and Doyle High School in Knoxville, Tn. In 1982 he began a new career as an insurance specialist which he pursued for another twenty years. He grew up in the rural farm community of Snow Hill, near Chattanooga, Tn. He worked and played on his grandfather's dairy farm as a boy and many of his paintings reflect his childhood memories and the country life he loved so much.
Most of his paintings have a nostalgic tinge of country and the earthy colors of the outdoors. The barns are from his childhood memories and photos of many places he has visited since then. His website illustrates his attempt to help preserve his memories of the farm for himself, his family, and others, like you.
Spencer has been drawing and painting since he was a child. After much trial and error with different media, he fell in love with watercolors and has been using this medium primarily for about fifteen years. There are a few acrylics and pen and ink as well as pencil drawings in his galleries.
He has lived and worked his entire life in Tennessee and fell in love with the Smoky Mountains, in particular Cades Cove. In his galleries of paintings, you will see the scenes that he loves best from East Tennessee. "
