About Patricia Taylor

http://www.unveilingjourney.com/

I'm retired and I love it! I paint and write the memories of my life...and in doing so, I create new memories!

At age 73, there's lots to remember. I've traveled much of the world, first with my engineer husband and family, secondly with my political career, and thirdly (in my imaginative mind) with my writing and painting. The last part is the most fun.

Below is what's been written about me. The me of today is in casual clothes with splashes of paint here and there. I think I've finally become eccentric. Yea!

Patricia is a U.S. citizen who lived, traveled, and studied in Japan, Europe, and the Middle East at different times in her life. Currently she is a full time artist and writer living in Florida where her international background and art study come alive in her oil paintings. She generally paints for friends and family; here she displays her art for you to view and to order prints or cards if you like from FAA. Patricia does not sell her original art online. She usually paints specifically for an individual. You are welcome to look and to purchase prints or cards from FAA. If you would like Patricia to paint something specifically for you, please contact her for further information. Thank you for stopping by!

Marshes of Glynn County

Nature is my religion. Freedom is my goal. In 1984, I worked for Congressman Charles Bennett on Capitol Hill as his legislative assistant. My project was to manage legislation to establish the Timucuan Preserve in northeast Florida. I prepared scientists and other professionals from Florida and Georgia to testifly to the Interior Committee on behalf of the wetlands' necessity to sustain life for humans, fish, fowl, and all other creatures of our part of the world. In the process, I fell in love with the marsh lands, their history (which is entwined with my own Scottish/English history), and their poetic beauty. Today, indeed, we have the Timucuan Preserve in Jacksonville, Florida, established within the National Park Service. Mr. Bennett had great respect for the Timucuan Indians who lived throughout these marshlands of the coastal and southern areas of Georgia and northeast Florida. The National Park Service did an outstanding job of recreating the life of these remarkable Indians and maintaining a beautiful, natural preserve. Recently I visited the wetlands of Glynn County, Georgia and photographed the area. Follow the winding marsh pathway and you will behold the mighty ocean. Marshes of Glynn. Poetry by Sidney Lanier (1842-1881): "As the marsh-hen secretly builds on the watery sod, Behold I will build me a nest on the greatness of God: I will fly in the greatness of God as the marsh-hen flies In the freedom that fills all the space ’twixt the marsh and the skies: By so many roots as the marsh-grass sends in the sod I will heartily lay me a-hold on the greatness of God: Oh, like to the greatness of God is the greatness within The range of the marshes, the liberal marshes of Glynn." My greatgrandmother, Adora Jordan West Clark, survived the Civil War and lived to write of her great love for the Marshes of Glynn...both the poetry and the land and the sea. In 1984, in a meeting with the National Park Service, I sat on the floor of Mr. Bennett's office and studied a huge map of Georgia and Florida wetlands that was stretched out of the floor. I thought that greatgrandmother Adora would be proud!
