Savannah Romance!       

I went to lose a jolly hour on the trolley and lost my heart instead.
 by Ralph Blane (b. 1914), U.S. songwriter. "The Trolley Song," Meet Me in St. Louis, Leo Feist Inc. (1944).

6" by 6" original oil on wrap around canvas with sides painted. 


 More fun today working on a trolley from my trip to Savannah earlier this month.
I found this quote about trolleys and it made me smile.  I find them to be very romantic and take me back in time to the old movies I used to watch like "Meet
Me In St. Louis".  My trip to Savannah was incredibly romantic in so many ways
and I look forward to sharing more paintings from my trip.  We saw lots of birds
so I will still be painting wildlife but also look forward to branching out into new subjects.  I would love your comments and feedback!  Do you have any memories of taking a trolley? Why don't they make buses colorful and pretty like
these?
