In the mid nineties The Friends of Rivertown Fine Art Gallery opened. There were four permanent artists in the gallery. Every couple of months, two guest artists would show their works. In January of 1998 I was paired with Bill McInnis. In 2006 I was invited to hang art twhen a guest artist needed to remove his work. For a year the rotation of artists was in limbo. On Saturdays, I alternated gallery-sitting duties with a permanent artist. In April of 2007 the gallery was closed.

This painting includes colors from the gallery interior. The leaf shapes come from the artificial ficus trees that were placed near the front windows. The first time I applied the dots, the painting did not work out. I had to go back and repaint the background. Fortunately I had better luck with the dots on the second try.

  1. It's such a shame that the gallery was closed.

    The new mayor had other ideas. However, the space is still idle. GRRRRR.

    There is a World Trade Center in downtown New Orleans. For a number of years the lobby was used for art exhibitions.

    Wow! Your enthusiasm is overwhelming. Thank you for featuring my work.
