  • This painting was inspired by a photo I took of my niece, Lindsey when she visited me for her first Mardi Gras when she was about 20.  I dragged her to every parade...we had so much fun. Part of the tradition at New Orleans parades is to yell "Throw Me Something Mister" to the float riders so they throw you beads or gadgets.  This photo was taken Mardi Gras Day, we were dressed up and having a blast, and she was wearing these cheap star sunglasses I had.  I took a photo of her yelling to the floats as they passed.  The pic was so blurry, but I loved it and always thought it would make a great painting.  And it is...I painted this in 2012, and this is my pivotal piece...the one that wowed me inside and re-ignited my desire and determination to be a full-time artist. 
  • This original is painted in acrylic paints on a 40.25x54" canvas with a 1.5" depth on the wood bars with dark blue painted edges. This is truly a statement piece!
