Local Memphis artist Richard Fudge has an enormous backyard. It's nearly one acre but located in your average neighborhood. "Most days I feel blessed. Other days I have to mow all that," says Richard. A prominent feature is the grove of seven large pine trees. As the trees have matured, branches have reached and twisted for light. Finding the lines and forms of the pines to be elegant, Richard began painting a new series called Erin's Grove. So this summer when he's not out there behind a mower, he's been behind an easel. "This is the kind of yard work I could do every day."
