Preservation Hall, New Orleans, Louisiana
This is my latest commission and definitely my most ambitious so far. I ended up taking this job over the holidays and slowly painted every chance that I got. It is on a pretty large 21/2 ft by 31/2 ft canvas and painted in acrylics. The client, had recently been to New Orleans and visited a pretty cool and authentic jazz hall called Preservation Hall. I was asked to paint the interior of the hall in a little bit of a warped style, similar to my city paintings. This was like a dream job to me (being a fan of jazz and inspired by the New Orleans culture from a previous visit of my own). I had a lot of fun with it.
Sorry for the bad photo. I will be replacing this one with a new one soon and add some close up shots.
