George’s Painting Note: When the state’s Small Works on Paper 2014 exhibit took place in the Delta Cultural Center this summer and “The Tree” postcard painting was included, I was asked to make a presentation. It was fun to re-visit this Delta town (1 1/2 hour south of Memphis). I did these postcards of the restored historic buildings. This building built in 1905 which housed the Jewish congregation there for generations until they moved away has just been restored and is a beauty.
