I am enamored with the natural and man made beauty of our region, New Orleans architecture, the surrounding swamps, bayous and marshes. I was inspired to paint this series because these treasures need to be preserved. I have painted these treasures in Victorian cloche`s, which were used in that era to preserve small curiosities. Elaborate wallpapers were also popular during that era and the ones I created for "Preservation" corresponds with what is preserved in the cloche`. The chest that the cloche` is sitting on is a loose interpretation of the one that belonged to my beloved grandmother.
