"Bourbon Street"

Oil on Panel
Ever since my wife and I visited New Orleans this past New Year's Eve, I've wanted to paint something from the trip. Bourbon Street certainly isn't my favorite part of New Orleans, in fact, it's probably my least favorite part of New Orleans, but it's still an amazing site.
I painted this really quickly this afternoon. I like the contrast between the warm lights of the street level and the coolness of the building tops and the flags. Feels like a belly full of bourbon to me.
