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!
