Artist: Abby Howard Murphy
Bio: A Jacksonville resident for 19 years, I still marvel at the natural wonders and vistas found in northeast Florida and those discovered travelling. Photographs never do justice, but allow me to recall the details, color and strength of these special places as subjects for my paintings to recapture that memory and share it.
Piece: The Fortitude of Roots
Piece Description: Bare tree roots clasp the eroded shores of a dry Tennessee creek bed in spring (30 x 40 acrylic).
