This Gallery is a painter's tour through Louisiana BEFORE the 2010 gulf oil spill.  Colorful, quaint, the very old and the very new...memorable images captured on canvas.

Steam rises on the Black Bayou and Cypress trees dance in the reflections of Lake Providence.  More than 100 lakes bathe Louisiana, offshoots of the Mississippi and Red River.  Brown Pelicans, Ducks, and pretty big turtles own the land and the waters, except where the alligator roams!

Cane River Creole National Historical Park, on the Cane River, is amidst the Sugar Plantations sporting their fineries of the 1800's including ponds, and statues of cherubs, dogs, frogs, herons and hand hewn waterfalls.

 New Orleans has roots in the 1700's leaving sights like the St Louis Cemetery - crypts of dignitaries from pirates to generals and, of course, there's the oldest section of town, the French Quarter.    Yes, Louisiana is the greatest wetland in "America" but also it is much much more!
