dready up on the bayou


                                  dready 'the camp on the bayou' - original on paper - 22x14

a family from atlanta asked me to do a dready for their father in louisiana, in new orleans ... the only thing that i had to work with really, was that he liked fishing, loved being on his boat and that the louisiana water wasn't the lovely blue of the caribbean...

so I started with that and the dready kinda evolved organically ... I wanted to show some elements of what being on the water in the bayou is all about ... I've been to baton rouge and beyond Louisiana in the verges of the bayou in mobile and biloxi ...

big old trees and old man's beard, spanish moss ... and small wood cottages, shacks

At the time I didn't know that the family had a holiday house, that had been destroyed in Katrina - but after the first draft the story of the house came up - this is the nice part about a dready, the interaction and the participation of the client ... so 'the camp' snuck into the image.

coolness ...
