I am enamored with the natural and man made beauty of our region, New Orleans above ground tombs and historic cemeteries,architecture, the surrounding swamps, bayous, and marshes. I was inspired to paint this series because these treasures need to be preserved. I chose to paint them in glass cloche`s that were popular in the Victorian era, as were elaborate wallpapers. The wallpapers I created for this series correspond with what is in the cloche`. This one has the iconic Fleur de Lis of the flag of New Orleans since the cemeteries are such a beautiful part of our city and there are so many of them here, most of which are in a state of crumbling decay. The chest that the cloche`s sits on is a loose interpretation of one that belonged to my beloved grandmother.
