I took the reference photo for this painting while out on a regular trot through the French Quarter. The building is believed to be abandoned but I was not able to confirm this information. I have been told that it was previously a liquor store. According to some swift online research the building was originally built in 1900 and stands on the corner of St.Peter and Dauphine. This information has not been confirmed as I have not been able to find solid resources.
While taking my regular walks around the neighborhood I started to become aware of the subtle beauty entangled in the low-hanging powerlines that dart from house to house. There is something enchanting about the powerlines, and familiar architecture that makes walking through New Orleans neighborhoods feel like living in a movie. In my art I aim to capture the enchanting nature of New Orleans for people who live here, leave here and visit.
I grew up in Metairie, Louisiana and am now living and working in the Uptown area. I studied Fine Art at the University of Louisiana Lafayette and the University of New Orleans. And since all the locals want to know... St. Mary's Dominican Highschool.NEW ORLEANS
