A family visit to Cafe du Monde in New Orleans and an impromptu photo resulted in a family portrait that just begged to be painted. We were in New Orleans to celebrate the engagement of my son and daughter-in-law (who grew up there). Once finished, I had a high res scan and prints done of the painting. The prints were matted and framed and became Christmas gifts for all at the table.
When I travel, I am rarely interested in purchasing some memento of the trip. Often I take photos and when one speaks to me, I paint it. A painting makes a great souvenir and it’s way better than a t-shirt!
