Painting of Old Hickory Lake, Old Style!

I just completed a decor map painting of Old Hickory Lake. I did two different styles, a standard map style and an artistic style. Click on map for better view 

Standard Style 

Artistic Style

The lake and roads are hand drawn/painted and I added the lettering with a graphics program.  Checkout the plane crossing over. Old Hickory Lake is located on the Cumberland River in Tennessee and is part of TVA. It was completed in 1954. I have enjoyed this lake many times boating, fishing and water skiing. To add a little more creativity to the idea, I named a few of the surroundings on the map. Of course, it's in the vintage style, such as my maps, and a feeling of the 1930s cola ads. Let me know what you think!

Check-out my vintage style maps for the lake house. They make the best gift for the lake lover, lake house owner, or fisherman. If you have a special Lake, River or Bay, then paddle over to my website at LeoLakes.com

Remember: " Get away from the big screen and get on a big stream, if not, then at least put on the wall."
