A mass at St. Stephen's in New Orleans was the inspiration behind the painting. I saw a dove representing the holy spirit above the crucifix. I thought of a brown pelican, our state bird ascending from a cross to represent NOLA rising from destruction and corruption following Hurricane Katrina. While painting the pelican, I thought of crawfish angels taking the pelican skyward. The halo was made from Mardi Gras beads, dried in gel and roughly removed leaving a crusty, seascape look. The 3 fish, which could have been 3 of anything, represent the holy trinity. The watermark will not appear on your painting.
Acrylic paint, glitter paper, ink, varnish on canvas. Framed in reclaimed wood.

Nancy Wolfe Kimberly, aka Gator Girl, is lover of all things New Orleans. New Orleans is her muse. Wherever she looks she is struck visually and spiritually by her surroundings. Whether it is a Mardi Gras Indian in his dazzling suit, an alligator sunning herself along the bayou, or a quiet cemetery in the evening, New Orleans speaks to her heart.
When she paints she has two goals, to spread healing energy to the city and to spread the New Orleans attitude of love to the rest of the world.
Nancy Wolfe Kimberly is a New Orleans artist living and working in the Uptown neighborhood.
