Last May I took a trip to Savannah Georgia. There was so much to see and take in that I really didn't have time to think about what exactly I was dealing with. The past few months have been so busy with school and everything else that life brings, that I didn't really get a chance to examine the trip either. Well I finally got to look into a section of the trip that has very strong potential. While in Savannah, I visited The Bonaventure Cemetery. There was a lot of history there dating all the way back to The Civil War. Anyway, this painting is of a headstone that grabbed my attention rather quickly. It was the grave of Corinne Elliot Lawton. I plan to do a lot more work on the Cemetery, and the rest of the beautiful city of Savannah.

In my painting class my instructor (Mr. Mat Barber Kennedy) had these licorice candies that he used to eat as a child in England. He generously shared them with the class. I, however, don't enjoy licorice. But since he was nice enough to share his booty with me I obliged and tried the candy... It was excruciating. When I didn't finish it I asked him what i should do with it. He told me to paint it (which was of no surprise to me). So I found another piece and set up a miniature still-life. The painting is about 3''x3.5'' and took about an hour and a half to complete.
