Preservation #3 18×24


/ Monday, July 15th, 2019

I am enamored with the natural and man made beauty of our region, New Orleans architecture, the surrounding swamps, bayous and marshes. I was inspired to paint this series because these treasures need to be preserved. As part of one of my themes of marriage of past and present, I chose to paint them in glass domes that were popular in the Victorian era, as was elaborate wallpapers. The wallpaper I created for this series corresponds with what is in the dome. The chest that the domes sits on is a loose interpretation of the one in our living room that belonged to my beloved grandmother. 18×24 SOLD
