This image was painted on the back rest of a church pew. The church pew was auctioned off as my donation to the International School in New Orleans. The winner of the piece was Wendell Pierce, New Orleans' actor and star of the HBO series Treme.
I wanted to add subtle hints of some of the most prominent landmarks in the Treme. St Augustine Church is in the background and there is a second line in the street just as you would see on any ordinary day in the Treme.
This was such a fun piece to paint.
