New Orleans and Angel painting by Karen Tarlton fine art impressionism in oil

Angel of Joy

New Orleans Starry Night Moon

 From a white canvas, I begin to see old New Orleans emerge with pure oils. I used some cad red and cad yellow in this one for added punch. I decided all palette knife and no brush as a knife seems to better suit New Orleans. Good Jazz music and lots of vibrant color.

I have had many requests for more New Orleans French Quarter paintings and promise to try to keep painting more. This city is like the Paris of our country. Everyone who has ever been there loves it and some of the best people are from New Orleans. I love its antiquity and architecture, soul and charm. It is a joy to paint....hope you enjoy.
