St Joseph Altar #2 18×24. SOLD to the permanent collection for the new LSU Health Sciences Center, St. Joseph Altar St. Frances Xavier Church Metairie Rd 14×18 acrylic on deep canvas. A beautiful New Orleans tradition. The altar must have 3 tiers and all of the offerings on the altar have a significant meaning. I visit and photograph a St Joseph altar annually on St Joseph Day, March 19th.
