The last painting is of the old two-pen cabin where I was born in Alabama; many of my poems are based on the hardships of those who took care of the deep red southern soil that grew the white gold called “cotton”.

    This was a fascinating journey into the southern way of life through paintings, Elizabeth. I was wondering how recently did you complete this book? I feel bad I did not feature this on my post. . . Yet!
