A Visit To New Orleans

The French Quarter
A family wedding took me to New Orleans last weekend for the wedding of my niece.  There is nothing like a New Orleans wedding...on St. Patricks Day.  These pictures are from my wanderings in the French Quarter.   Everyone should visit this place once in their's an experience for sure!  The art, the food, the music, the masks, the "live" street art, the people.  There's no place like it.

Oriental Flair-Home & Garden Altered Book

Posted by Picasa

Strolling the Garden, updated

I don't usually to go back to a piece I've already posted, but I went back and worked on the Lady with the Umbrella, because I just wanted to add more layers and interest to the page and make the bottom of the page look like there was more a garden/flower element going on.   I still have "issues" with the arms....but I'll get to that too. I  also ended up sanding the umbrella a bit, hoping to make it look slightly more ethereal.  This picture, however, is just about the bottom of the page.
