New Orleans is known for it’s many street artists and musicians. My husband was born there, has family there and we have spent many vacations in the French Quarter, the enchanting old section of the city. Recently on a fellow artist’s blog ( Vern Schwarz ), Vern posted a painting of a street musician, Roger Ridley from Santa Monica, California. The painting was inspired by a video of some fabulous street artists from all over the world performing “Stand by Me”. What a joy and inspiration it is watching these musicians perform one of my all time favorites! I’ve painted performer Grandpa Elliot in New Orleans who you’ll find in the video mix. Vern and I have immortalized two of these musicians and maybe you’d like to join us. Link, enjoy and rock out!
