Copper Shade Tree
Round Top, TX
Gerald was laid off from his corporate job, after 18 years of service. He decided to focus on his artwork as a full-time job. This led to TV appearances, art shows and an artist in residence program. Then he and his wife opened their own art gallery, Copper Shade Tree, which led to collaborating with other artists. Gerald believes the story behind the artwork is just as important as the piece itself and notes passion leads to a story.
