At least one silver lining appeared after 2005’s Hurricane Katrina. Mickey Asche decided that if he had to rebuild his life he would rebuild it to his specifications. He left a career as an aircraft mechanic to pursue his true calling as an artist. “As a teenager, I could not have asked for more when it was announced that my family was moving from Kentucky to Louisiana. Once I looked on a map and saw the vast number of bayous, marshlands, and swamps, I knew I was moving to paradise. I spent most of my days traversing the back waterways, wetting a line, and being in awe of my surroundings. I am filled with almost a sense of urgency when I am inspired by the way the sun catches the back of a magnolia tree or how the glow of the moon reflects on a small puddle. With my oils, I love to capture the fine hairs of a squirrel’s tail or the detailed reflections of a cypress tree on the bayou. When someone sees my painting and asks if it is a photograph, I feel like I have recreated nature to the best of my ability and have done it justice.”
