“You will not find poetry anywhere unless you bring some of it with you.”
– Joseph Joubert

Eufaula, OK – Main and Foley – 8″ x 10″ Watercolor & Ink

This painting is being donated to the Eufaula Area Chamber of Commerce for their Community Dinner/Dance silent auction on December 8th.   I fell in love with this painting and I’m the artist, so I hope it’ll be a hit at the auction.

About Joseph Joubert

French essayist Joseph Joubert became famous after his death when his friend, the renowned author Chateaubriand, gathered a selection of essays into the book Collected Thoughts of Mr. Joubert. Joubert was born in 1754 in Périgord. He attended and then taught at a religious college in Toulouse but left in 1778 for Paris, where he became friends with a number of great thinkers of the time. He wrote copiously on such subjects as ethics, politics, theology, and literature. He died in 1824.

    Perfect scene for your town’s silent auction, Beth. I can see why you might be attached to it. Streetcorner near where I live? That would be tempting.

    Great perspective and I love the tiny colorful shop fronts! The awnings are a great detail (note to self in case I get around to some streetscapes)!

    [I’m in the middle of making all kinds of neat, small art items but because they are for secret santas at my ATC groups, I can’t post any, which is a bummer!]

      Thanks, Cindy. I feel your pain on not posting. I’ve been painting some commissions that will be gifts for others, so I can’t post them either. Bummer! 😀
