The Front Page: Fire, Earth, Air and Water

The Front Page: Fire, Earth, Air and Water, oil on canvas with mixed media, 12x36"
This painting is part of a group invitational now showing at the Garden District Gallery in New Orleans, An Iconic Presence: The Times-Picayune. I wanted to come up with a way to focus on the front page and decided the elements to be a perfect metaphor. Fire:explosions; Earth:levees; Air: polution; and Water:flooding - all nearly daily components of our local front page. 
This group exhibition explores the myriad ways our local newspaper, which recently went to a three-day a week publication schedule, has been an integral part of our daily lives and is a tribute to the talented men and women who have contributed their extraordinary skills and dedication to a daily newspaper that was without peer in the southern United States. The exhibit features photography, paintings in oil, watercolor and mixed media. To see more images from the show, you can visit
