One of the things the south is noted for is the abundance of artists, writers, actors.
William Faulkner, Eudora Welty, John Grisham, all hail from the great state of Mississippi.
A few years back, my wife and I discovered an artist’s work that we fell in love with. His use of vibrant colors in his watercolors, his ability to capture the architecture of the “old south”, the emotion he is able to instill into a painting of clothes drying on a clothesline.
There’s a country song out now, that laments, “can you paint me a Birmingham” reminds me of this artist, in that he has often “painted me” back to New Orleans or Oxford, MS, or Jackson.
If you want to see this man’s work, go to the site of Artist, Wyatt Waters; you won’t be disappointed.
