Local Memphis artist Richard Fudge has an enormous backyard. It’s nearly one acre but located in an average neighborhood in East Memphis. “Most days I feel blessed. Other days I have to mow all that,” explains 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 inspired by these branches. “This is yard work I could do every day.”
