The homes in Madison, GA are some of the most classically beautiful, and well maintained that I have seen in my lifetime. Many of them are Antebellum, and date back to the days of the Civil War and before. Several are plantation style, and have servant’s quarters in the back yards. It’s like a little piece of history, preserved forever here in my home town.
Growing up, I took the beauty of Madison for granted. I had the typical teenager complaint of being bored, and “having nothing to do”, citing arguments like “we need a bowling alley where the old Ingles used to be”, and “if we could just get a movie theatre”. Now that I am somewhat older, I appreciate the preserved beauty that is within the Historic District of Madison.
Chris does a fantastic job of capturing not only the beauty of this yellow home, but of the gorgeous landscaping and foliage that surround many of the homes in our community. This is another one of the images that Chris created with his digital painting program. He uses the tablet to “paint” the colors onto the page. While the yellow of the house is definitely prominent in this painting, I can not help but to be drawn to the beauty of the flowers, trees, and bushes around it.
I think that it is a great testament to Chris’ ability to be able to capture this home in such a realistic manner as to draw the viewer to feel and experience the landscaping around this gorgeous yellow house. There really is something special about Madison, it’s homes, and the feeling that they inspire. Chris captures all of those in this painting.
