Maison Folie a Deux

10"x12" Oil on Canvas by Christy Michalak, November 2017

Painted on location in New Orleans


This is a little plein air painted on location (Marigny, for those in the know!) in New Orleans.  I had the pleasure of meeting up with New Orleans artist Phil Sandusky at one of his favourite painting spots.  And what a charming spot it was!!

Afterwards Phil and his students introduced me to their favourite local sandwich joint, and overall it was a day to remember amongst ten wonderful days in New Orleans.

The subject - Maison a Folie Deux - I found out later, is a B&B!  Somewhere to stay next time!



 Edit, December 19 2017: I'm so so happy to say that this painting sold to the owner of Maison Folie a Deux, as a surprise Christmas gift to his partner.  I varnished it tonight and will be shipping to LA in the coming days.  As an artist, it doesn't get better than this: adding happiness under the Christmas tree!



  • Chad, I’m so happy to send this to you in LA! Merry Christmas!! I’m proud of this one and so happy that it will bring some smiles to you as well!

  • Christy, I love this painting you did of our house! Would be interested in buying from you if it for sale. Would be great to have in there for guests to enjoy!
