Tishomingo Blues, 8x10" (Sold)

Last weekend, John and I went back to New Orleans, my home town.  One morning, we went to The Court of Two Sisters for brunch on the patio.  A live jazz trio was playing in the background as we feasted on Shrimp Creole, french bread, and Bananas Foster.  I bought the trio's CD (Charlie Fardella and his Sensation Jazz Band) and have been playing it all week as I paint.

This morning, I turned the music up and painted this scene as I listened.  One of my favorite tunes is Tishomingo Blues, so I named the painting after this one.  I learned that it's hard to keep serious and "in the lines" when you're listening to New Orleans jazz!
