“This first oil painting is of one of Savannah’s famous squares. The downtown area features miniature parks, inside squares, between city blocks. The roads are narrow compared to the freeway and suburban areas, so the parks are visible from one to the next. They showcase trees draped with flowing Spanish moss, flowers, fountains, statues, and memorials. One of the park squares has an astrological sun dial on top of a sculpture of turtles; another has a sculpture memorializing fallen police officers- with their names engraved.

The squares are romantic and intriguing. While some enjoy trolley or horse-drawn carriage tours, I like to explore these surprises for myself, on foot. It takes several days to thoroughly enjoy each square and its surrounding eateries, museums, and more. Each area is well landscaped and there’s always a bench nearby. One such bench, in Chippewa Square, was made famous by its appearance in the movie “Forrest Gump”. The bench was brought in just for that scene, and has since been moved to the nearby Savannah History Museum.

The actual benches are inside the squares. The squares are surrounded by coffee shops, restaurants, pubs, shops, and residences, as well as a historic cemetery and churches. Locals and tourists enjoy walking their dogs, jogging, taking baby out for a stroll, and photography. Flowers and decor change each season, but the area remains lush and photogenic all year round.”
