Hi all y’all!
My newest painting is about alligators in love at Jazz Fest. I painted a similar painting a couple of years ago. The first Jazz Fest painting was inspired by a photo of my granddaughter, Maggie, and her cousin Lenny. They were dancing at Jazz Fest as part of a family reunion.
While the original painting was hanging in my living room, I fell in love with the composition. So when my daughter wanted that painting for her house, I decided to paint the same scene with alligators.
The grass has the shape of the whole world. The skywriting is really a thing at Jazz Fest… not so much the wildflowers.
The whole painting seems happy to me.
This one is a little different… taller grass, no purple flowers, more imaginative. I based the girl on Gator Ballerina just in case I want to include this painting in a traveling alligator book one day.
They are both large paintings, 30 x 40 inches. I will be making prints after the paintings are photographed.
Jazz Fest is a great adventure. If you haven’t been, I hope you can one day.
Love is in the air,
