Miss Brandy, you go girl

September 30, 2012

It was a gorgeous cool early morning on Oct. 13, 1999 when I packed up all of my art supplies, slammed the back screen door and headed to 204 East Main Street to paint for the entire day ahead.

My high school friends and I took a road trip this weekend and had to pull off the road several times to yuk-it-up over some gaff we had made while pretending to be tech-savvy.

A Starkville Mississippi Waterscape

September 21, 2012

I saw a landscape of a waterscape tower, and was inspired to sketch and paint a landscape of a scene of water. What is a water tower? It almost looked like a tall insect with an elevated tank to give pressure for distributing water to citizens of Starkville, which has been known as having the most refreshing and tasteful water in all of Mississippi.
