Pete Fountain, a true saint of New Orleans music is exquisitely portrayed here in traditional iconic style. Painted on a custom built birch panel assembly and gilded in 24k gold. This piece was recently on exhibit at The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Foundation Gallery.
“The Gospel According to New Orleans”, my collection of iconic New Orleans musicians and culture bearers commemorates their role in the evolution of the eccentric culture and music traditions of New Orleans. All depicted in this series are musical and cultural icons who make or live on through their significant contributions to the uniqueness of what composes the spirit of New Orleans.
They exemplify the joie de vivre that runs through all aspects of life here in all of its diversity.
