The Morris Museum of Art has Dark Corners: The Appalachian Murder Ballads paintings by Julyan Davis. I have seen these pieces and believe me they are worth viewing a number of times. While working with a few Italian artists when I lived in northern Italy, I was told the mark of a really good oil painting was if you were able to walk from one side to the other and see completely different views and subject matter as you viewed the piece. These pieces caused me to pause and reflect on each one. The skill level is outstanding and the reflections in the puddles of water are just unbelievable. It is as if you are actually walking in the scene.
I have 12 pieces of my work exhibiting in the Healing Art Program at Georgia Regents Medical Center on the second floor near the labs of the west entrance. Don’t forget to check out the art of the Artist of the Month at our local businesses. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
