Mardi Gras Images, a Montage in Oil

Recently, I have been painting some wide panoramic scenes of New Orleans. This painting was done for a Nola resident and combines his favorite Mardi Gras impressions into one view. St. Louis Cathedral, a Krewe of Zulu float, French Quarter balconies, Second Line dancers, and a brass band all flow together to create this 6 Foot wide piece.

My favorite image in this painting is the "Flambeau," or torch, carrier. It is a Mardi Gras tradition that I was unfamiliar with, until I did this painting.

I welcome these types of commissions because it gives me a chance to get to know the customers as we work together on creating pieces that have meaning for them.
