Crypt at Historic Oakland Cemetary Atlanta Georgia
artist: Anita D. Livaditis
Oil Painting on Board
Painted on location at Historic Oakland Cemetary in downtown Atlanta Ga., Oakland Cemetery is where Margaret Mitchell who wrote Gone With the Wind is buried, among many other famous Atlantans. This mausoleum is located in the NE corner of the cemetery along Boulevard as it bends on the Cabbagetown side, about a block down from the Fulton Cotton Mill.
Historic Oakland Cemetery was my neighbour for many years when I lived in Cabbagetown. I used to load up my backpack and go and paint there as there were so many interesting monuments and wonderful views of Atlanta, the city I am from. This particular Crypt is styled like a miniature church. It reminded me of Van Gogh's Church at Auvers, which had no doors, only in this case there were doors, but, ironically, no exit. The intense blue sky I used here is reminiscent of that.
