reverence on roof paper

August 11, 2011

After a visit with Georgia folk artist R.A. Miller in 1998, Tres Taylor decided to switch careers. A biochemist for 12 years, Taylor turned to painting to tell stories.

In his Birmingham, AL, studio, the self-taught artist uses house paint, acrylics and wood putty on tarpaper (or roofing felt) to create his favorite subjects, which include monks, couples and houses.

But all of Taylor’s colorful subjects (or stories) are symbols of love. Take the “Bicycle Monk,” one of Taylor’s signature pieces. It is the story of a monk who loves life – like Taylor. The piece is $3,800 and measures 58 inches by 58 inches framed. Visit
