Where Is Suvo ?
5-7 E mail from Suvo to firstname.lastname@example.org
In this photo Karl and I are at the confluence of Florida'a Withlacoochie and the Suwannee River. I am on the last leg of a "Southern Circle" trip through Savannah,Ga.,Atlanta,Ga,Asheville,N.C.,Cherokee N.C.,Tallahassee, Fl.and soon I'll be back in old St. Augustine after staying on Amelia Island for a few days.
I talked with artists in each of those towns and saw an amazing amount of talent. Whenever I set up my easel there was always someone stopping to talk. It is a good thing meeting people, but difficult to paint. I am a studio artist meaning that I do not paint the landscape on site. I really need my stuff around me.........yeah, "Old School "Scott,....even my computer, it is another tool for me. In this photo you will see a pristine brush and an already framed painting. I did not see a technicolor rooster pecking around the riverbank. A passing canoeist posed this picture and we downloaded it to the "jump drive" on my keychain. Technology!
Look at Karl gazing at the flowing peat colored water. Florida is a beautiful state. Karl and I are happy that we live here. St. Augustine is a gem of a city in Florida and it saddens me that some in the city are as intolerant of the street artists as they were of Martin Luther King back in '64.
May 13 is not a court date ! ( Offense - offering art for sale in the Plaza) but a pre trial date. I am confused by all of the preliminaries of Florida's court system. Nothing to see on that day but me and my attorney Tom Cushman just standin' there and that is not all that interesting. Perhaps you will come to see the lovely and gracious Judge Patty Christianson doing her marvelous judicial work and perhaps she will also read this.
