Jim Draper will be working for the next couple of weeks capturing the rolling oaks of Southwood on four sheets of canvas. It's all a part of Southwood's first artist in residence program through May 17th. Draper says he hopes to catch the way light hits the trademark oaks of our area.

"I think about the oaks. It's the old plantation oaks, which is what Tallahassee is known for is the ancient oak trees with the moss and that's what this place is about and that's what these paintings are about." Draper said.

Draper's work in progress will be called Plantation Oaks. His other acclaimed pieces have graced the walls of hundreds of corporations and private collections.
