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.
