Bayou Dreaming (Sold)

36”x48”
Acrylic on canvas

Louisiana is a place of contrasts: celebrations winding among shadows and ghosts; bright colors wrapped in somber grays; deafening brass amid silent alleyways; down-to-earth and other-worldly. The bayou carries you off into dreamy waterways and the Spanish moss drips from the live oak creating an eerie yet ethereal atmosphere.  Influenced by the paintings of Matisse and his love of textiles I created a bayou that sings with contrasting melodies and captures the spirit of an exotic place.
