I've been painting lots of my favorite places and views around Memphis (or, at least, the sections I visit regularly, which my friends will tell you are fairly limited). However, I don't want to put a gloss on the city and am trying to find a range of views, from pretty to gritty, if you will, even though I realize that my style makes everything seem a bit more cheerful than normal.
In the interests of balance and reality, this is the alley behind my house, complete with the patch from our recent sinkhole repair.
