Origin of New Orleans
Acrylic and pastel on canvas
24"x30" Year 2019
The painting is inspiration from my trip to New Orleans. The vast culture and history from Civil War to Bourbon street is depicted in abstract form on the canvas. The Mississippi river flows from top right corner to lower left corner. Civil War is depicted on the right side of the painting where brother is killing a brother! The war is shown in ocher red color.
Other side of the Mississippi river shows current fun loving New Orleans where music is being played, street drummers are performing! There are several other New Orleans features in the paining which you can pin point easily.
