"Savannah, Georgia has always been a city for romantics. There is no place quite like the Old South for exquisite natural beauty gracefully intertwined with rich history and charming architecture. And no place exemplifies the Old South quite like Savannah.
For those of you who have paid a visit to this enchanting Southern city, you may have found yourself strolling down the ancient and elegant lanes of Forsyth Park, the crown jewel of Savannah. Built during an age of urban idealism over a century ago, Forsyth Park remains one of the most visually abundant locales in all of Savannah. Her shady lanes are scented by multitudes of flowers, and anchoring the tranquil scene is the elegant Forsyth Fountain, a 150 year old Parisian-inspired architectural gem.
In my painting, Savannah Romance, I've included an abundance of color - dogwood and mimosa trees vie for attention with resplendent southern magnolias and lush azaleas. Reigning over it all is the majestic Forsyth Fountain, bubbling forth with blessings anew.
Whether you've been to Savannah, or simply admire a state of being that celebrates life's blessing, may Savannah Romance truly bring out the dreamer's heart in all of us. It is my hope that your imagination will take you on a stroll down this shaded pathway to discover your own fountain of many blessings."
A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.
