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!
