In the Garden District - Original Oil Painting

The homes in New Orleans' Garden District are a feast for the eyes! Their beautiful architectural details belie how functional all the lovely details are.
The tall graceful windows catch any available breezes; but their colorful shutters are ready to shut out the hot mid-day sun or, God forbid, a hurricane!
The lacy iron balconies are not only delicate and fanciful, but strong, and resistant to mildew and rot in a humid environment. They do require some lovely, subtle shade of paint now and then, but the gentle hints of rust only add to their charm.
These homes are a tribute to the architects and the skilled craftsmen who built them. They are also a tribute to the owners who have lovingly cared for them through the years.
