Good Times, 18x40”, Oil on Canvas, 2012. Normally, I paint from a still life set up. This one I painted from photographs in my studio. Priorities being what they are; I just couldn’t keep from eating those suckers. I moved from Louisiana to Texas in 1995 but I still long for the seasons first crawfish boil when spring starts to roll around. This painting was one of three pieces painted for a group exhibition at “The Garden District Gallery," in New Orleans, Louisiana. The show entitled, “The Times-Picayune: An Iconic Presence in Our Daily Lives," was in response to the Picayune cutting its circulation to a three day a week publication. It explored the myriad ways the newspaper was an integral part of NOLA.
