"o" Series New Orleans Slide Show

This group of paintings covers a much longer span of time, October 7, 2005 through June 30, 2006. I decided this would be a companion group to the first one. The titles were reversed placing “o” first in the names. That does give me a second “oo” piece, which points out the flaw in my naming system.
Well, that’s the way it goes.

From August 9, 2006 through March 11, 2007, I worked on this series that concerns my return to New Orleans. Rather than wallow in images of flood and hurricane destruction, I stuck to mostly positive imagery. As I adapted to the new normal in this area I tried to highlight events and places that stood out in my memory. And so, here is a slide show of the “o” Series New Orleans.

  1. I love the Fleur de Lis(es?), OK & OU. OT is wonderfully "retro" looking & OV is tremendously fun!

    Wikipedia says "lys" for plural.

    Well each piece has its own story. In some cases, there are events that took place after a painting's completion that added more meaning.
