dragon.gif What does across the river mean?? Well, in my day,if you lived on the West Bank of the Mississippi River and wanted to go to New Orleans on the opposite bank of the river people would say "going 'cross the river", (by ferry, of course).

I live in the one square mile city of Westwego, La., which is on the West Bank of the 'Big Muddy' opposite the 'Big Easy'.

gater.gifThe area offers an artist a great wealth of material from which a painter can choose. Starting from the city of Port Sulphur near the mouth of the Mississippi River, going west to the city of Grand Isle, La., then coming down Highway 1 to the cities of Golden Meadow, Cutoff, Larose, on down to the city of Thibodeaux. This area has fishing boats and camps, wildlife, and old homes of another era. I could also mention marshlands, and oil rigs, and the Gulf of Mexico.

Next, go down the river road along the levees of the Mississippi River to Baton Rouge, La. This area is rich in culture with old , historical, and antebellum homes. From here, we can double back to New Orleans, La. with it's multitude of subjects to paint.

All of the above mentioned area is in about a 95 mile radius.With this page, I will feature some of my paintings, and in time, those of other artists. I will feature what I call Folk Art in one of the galleries. I call my work folk art because when I paint from memory it resembles folk art.
