Product description

From the Author

Visions of a Virginia on the wane
Eldridge Bagley grew up a tobacco farmer. Only in his late twenties did he pick up a paintbrush and begin to create his landscapes and still lifes, evocative remembrances of a life close to the land in his own southside Virginia. Although his art might be called primitive, there is always a twist that shows his intelligence and awareness of the future encroaching on Virginia's past: a bulldozer, a superhighway, McDonald's arches in the distance, suggesting that the tobacco-farming times that he remembers from his youth are on the wane. If you have any sentimental attachments to Virginia or the rural south, you will enjoy this book. Although I wrote the text, our plan was to use Eldridge's own words and memories, to tell the stories he wants to tell to accompany his beautiful paintings.
