Bald Cypress Wetland Trees
Original Watercolor Painting
12 by 9 inches
Watercolor on 300 lb watercolor paper
My friend Autumn finally arrived.
Earth exposed, wind carries a whistle sound.
The trees one by one are shedding their clothes.
Leaves on fire, twirl toward the barren ground.
Bright sunny days, gone like a dream,
But I don’t feel sad, no… not sad at all.
When cool rain kisses my face, I feel at home
I sigh and my heart fills with joy, it’s finally fall.
Everyone gets ready for harsher days and nights.
Birds cry, crows crow,
Autumn’s clock winds down the year
Misty mornings a prelude to eventual snow
Autumn my Friend is here!

People say my style reminds them of VanGogh, I can see why. I appreciate such a great compliment even though I believe I do have my own unique style.
I study and examine his work whenever I can. Seen many of his pieces at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta. He definitely was one of those that gave me the courage to use bold colors.

This is such a gorgeous painting in person. I painted this with so much oil paint. No fillers all good rich oil painting of the highest quality. I used brushes and palette knifes. The trees is what I remember from growing up in Alsace France. Same in Germany where I lived later. The story goes that during hard times and war people used to cut off just the new branches for firewood.
They left the trunk and tree alive so it could later made new shoots and more fire wood. This is why these trees look like they do. You see them occasionally in VanGogh’s paintings as well.
Absinthe For Two Unique Still Life Original Painting. In the upper right corner you can see part of a painting by Picasso called The Absinthe Drinker, which he painted in 1902. I like to place famous paintings or parts of them within my own paintings. It's such a great value, and will be a conversation piece for sure, don't let this one get away. I use quality materials to create all my art. I can promise you when you hold this in your hands, it's better than in the screen. 18 x 24 inch ORIGINAL Painting painted with watercolor, ink and pastel painted on watercolor paper.

This painting is a 30 inch tall and 22 inch wide watercolor and ink on paper. It was commissioned by a collector from Pennsylvania.
I did as much research and reading on Saint Francis time wise as I did painting. it was important to me to have a good understanding of the man.
My client was overjoyed and loved the painting.

My air-conditioner about 28 years old started to not cool and freeze up all the time. Eventually air conditioning man put some more coolant in it, no dice. Still not cooling. Air condition man comes back after a few phone calls and puts in more coolant, plus unit cleaning. Still not cooling.
So far I paid 800 dollars and still have no air conditioning. It puffs out lukewarm air. So now the verdict is “Need a new Unit” will cost around 5 grand. Just about now I want to crawl in to a hole. Make it a cave a real cool one. I miss the temperate German summers that I remember.
Brick houses make for cooler dwellings too. Most houses in Germany are brick, cooler. Grandma used to close the shutters when it was hotter. No shutters on my rickety house, so the afternoon sun bakes the house.
Someone told me the weather in Berkeley California is like that in Germany, mostly, temperate. But Blairsville Ga is about 10 degrees cooler than the rest of Georgia too. Maybe I have to escape in to the mountains in summer, cats in tow.
But don’t they say the grass is always greener on the other side. I keep reminding myself of that, while looking forward to this huge cost that wasn’t in my budget. I hate Georgia Summers. Yesterday we had 106 degrees the next two weeks will be cooler “ONLY IN THE MID NINETIES” My house is an oven. Ice packs tied to my body have become my best friends.
Have I mentioned I hate Georgia Summers. I think I have.

I was inspired to paint this from my excursions in the the wetlands of South Georgia also known as the Okefenokee.
Where the sun creates magic and sparkle atop the dark mysterious waters. A land untamed by human hands, filled with the aroma of tannic water, sounds of unseen live. As my canoe glides along the watery path the lily pads and water grasses dance in the ripples. A heron flies up and out of sight.
