A PAINTING A DAY / crescent city brewhouse april first… five pm

Once a year I get the opportunity to show at the crescent city brewhouse on decatur street, and this year?   I get to show for april, WHICH includes french qtr fest, shore leave and both jazzfest weekends.    AGAIN , with Offbeat Magazine Photographer KIM WELSH, and Photographer RICK MOORE, we will grace the walls with our nola goodness.

LOTS of jazzfest shots, secondlines, and krewes…    for myself?   a painting a day.   here’s a taste of some of the works I have been working on.   mostly things I found after mardigras that inspired me, done festival style.
