Whenever I am in a new location, I always try to take lots and lots of photos for elements in paintings. Some work out as complete paintings "as is" and some are just pieces to be utilized in another composition. It pays to not just look around you, but to also look UP! Waiting for the parade to make its way down Bourbon Street, I noticed a lot of activity on the balconies above, and this painting came from one of those "as is" shots. It was Easter and the white suit and hat just glowed with light! I think I had just as good a view from the street as he did from his balcony.
