Tommy Thompson painted "Girl in the Courtyard" after visiting the Bluff View Art District in Chattanooga, TN. The District is very reminiscent of an Italian village, with its ornate iron gates, endless courtyards, balconies, archways, and art galleries. Visitors to the District are treated to a variety of foods, including Italian, American, etc. At the River Gallery shoppers discover an enchanting cacophony of bronze sculptures, majestic paintings, beautiful jewelry, intricate glasswork and countless other artistic creations.
