NOLA paintings

'St. Louis Cathedral' 

I was contacted a couple of weeks ago by a Gallery in New Orleans that wanted me to create artwork in my style using NOLA scenery.  After going thru photos and some Google surfing, I started sketching out some of the more well-known areas.  Over the years I must have been to Orleans over 100 times (maybe not exactly, but close to it) and there is SO MUCH energy & character to the city, I wanted to try and do it justice with my use of composition and colors.

Doing a series of around 9-10 pieces, I wanted to keep them all similar size, so I chose All to be 20" x 16" - acrylic on canvas. 

'French Market' 

'Cafe du' Monde'
