The Ashton Trees

Ashton Trees 2

My cousin, Ashton Shaw Despot, is a unique and wonderful artist who lives in New Orleans, where all of my immediate family live.  Her style of painting is unlike any I have ever seen, and I love it.  She projects a sense of wonder and serenity in her work that is almost childlike, in the best possible way.  This painting was inspired by one of hers.  It is not for sale and never will be, but hangs in my house as a tribute to the artistic genius of another woman in my family.  Please check out her work at  She is a genuine ray of light.
