I really try to avoid too much "themey" New Orleans stuff in our home (it is a bit "concert tee to the concert" to me...), but I figured that, if this didn't work in our little hallway, it was too great not to be used for someone's project. And, a great price for a large canvas piece. Heck, I could have sold it to a gimleter. Boo.
Perhaps to allay my disappointment, I will be forced to
buy dream about this photograph Leigh and I spotted (and now collectively yearn for...) at Jazz Fest last weekend.
Tropicana girl, taken by the artist, Christopher Porche-West, in Cuba two years ago.
We.love.her....and the particular frame she was living in.
Some of my other faves from his comprehensive website (check it out!):
Now, the showstoppers are Porche-West's assemblages. He creates the frames for his art pieces from found objects obtained throughout Nola. Some of them are simple, but others are highly detailed....art in and of themselves.
(My absolute dream framed photo/small assemblage is not on his website, but we spied it at the Fest and take my word...it is fabu)
As I have mentioned before, I love to trawl the crafts area at Jazz Fest, even if just for a few minutes. I have referenced some tiny art work I bought at JF in the past and hope to find a little treat this upcoming weekend...if it isn't rainy! I hope to share another talented artist with you from my adventures...
