Photo: Tennessee mascot Smokey painted on iconic 'Rock'
We’ve seen some incredible images painted on Tennessee’s iconic “Rock,” but this one may take the cake.
UT junior Payton Marie Miller painted an image of Smokey, and it looks fantastic. Miller tweeted out a photo of her painting, and fans are loving it on Twitter.
It’s one of the lesser-known great traditions in the SEC.

Tennessee’s rock was unearthed in the 1960s, and it quickly became the canvas for student messages. Thousands of coats of paint have been thrown on the rock face. It’s essentially an open forum for students.
