November 1, 2010 New Orleans Posted In: Log

In September, 2010 I had a meeting of the American Society of Marine Artists of which I am a Fellow Member. The meeting took place in beautiful Sarasota, Florida where my wife Kathy and I enjoyed the company of some of the nation’s leading maritime artists for several days. On our return flight we took a side trip to New Orleans for a few days of  enjoying the old French Quarter and some of the rare treats the area offers. While there, I took a half day to do a painting on Rue Royal, a beautiful old “Rue”  which parallels Bourbon Street. Below you’ll see a few photos from the trip.

We couldn't leave the "Crescent City" without breakfast at Brennan's!

And a final dinner at the legendary Galatoire's Restaurant.

While in New Orleans I visited the WWII Museum in which I found my painting "Tribute to a Generation". The painting is on loan from the American War Monuments Commission by whom I was commissioned to do the painting in 2004.
