Dr. Michael White is one of New Orleans Greatest musicians. This painting was a commission for the Old Algiers River Fest, of which he is one of the creators of. I had to tie in the river and it's connection to the music of the city with the perspective seen from Algiers Point. His style reminds me of the theme song to the flight path of a butterfly. His runs can take you all over the place and be erratic at times but there is a definite direction to where he takes the listener. I have been a fan of his music for quite some time and it doesn't hurt that he is from my Alma mater St. Augustine High school.
