Aretha Franklin is one of the artists being honored at the 2019 Jazzfest for her contributions to the musical landscape of New Orleans. She is an icon and I have portrayed her with the sun shining down on her with clouds with silver linings, and blue birds of happiness, all for her! Her crown is adorned with "Respect".
“The Gospel According to New Orleans” my collection of iconic New Orleans musicians 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.
