Waiting for the Streetcar


Yes, there is a line in it, but it is a real-io, trul-io fold-up map of The Big Easy. Should I have ironed it?? Perhaps so. I'm not that kind of artist! Anyway,this is the third in my New Orleans series, with yet another out-of-his-element bird in that famous partying town on the banks of the Mississippi River.

Here, to recap, are the other two paintings. They will all be in Small Work, Big Talent at LibertyTown which goes on the walls a week from Wednesday.


Looking for Bourbon St., 5 x 7, collage/acrylic on canvas

And below, Lost in The Big Easy, 6 x 6, collage/acrylic on deep cradle board

Thanks, you all. New Orleans was always one of my favorite places to visit when I lived on the Texas Gulf Coast. Ahh, the Cafe DuMonde, shrimp etoufee, Jackson Square, breathing swamp air....
