Oak Tree

These photos were taken shortly after my family concluded Thanksgiving Dinner. A large old oak tree is surrounded by gravel. There are some tables and chairs sprinkled around the space. A golf course is visible in the distance.

At ARTinA’s (Art in Algiers) September meeting, Sue Colmenares made a presentation on the art of tatting. First she discussed the tatting process while showing design diagrams from a book. Afterwards, she proceeded to work on a piece. She went on to talk about her large assortment of her works. Some were framed and others were sealed in plastic bags.

The Juried Show Inside

This year I made a point of arriving early for the Poydras Home Art Show and Sale. I wanted to be sure I photographed my three works hanging in the show. Last year one piece sold before I arrived. Upon entering the front hallway, my works were on the right side of the display, grouped with some smaller pieces on one board.

Annual Poydras Home Art Show and Sale

Over a week ago Poydras Home had it’s annual Art Show and Sale. The home is located at the busy intersection of Jefferson Avenue and Magazine Street in Uptown New Orleans. The front gate faces Magazine Street. Inside the gate there were two large tents of artists with their works. Across from the big tents were artists with their individual tents along the front walk. The show included painting, photography, sculpture, pottery, jewelry and fine crafts by regional artists.

Open Studios Night

A few Saturdays back, Louisiana ArtWorks had an Open Studios Night. The public was invited to visit the artists-in-residence at the facility. The studios are grouped in areas on the second and third floors of the building. There was an open bar on the ground floor and a dj on the second floor. The printmaking studio was open to visitors as well.

Halloween Party

On Halloween night I attended a party at this house in Metairie. The front lawn was decorated with tombstones and skeletons. Lights flashed in some spots. Fog shrouded the front garden in mystery.

Illuminated Jackolanterns

Jackolanterns illuminated the front sidewalk leading up to the house. The edges of the sidewalk were lined with strings of orange lights. Orange light glowed across the front lawn.


A little fog is always good for setting a spooky Halloween mood. Periodically a smoke machine would blow smoke toward the entrance of the house. Here are a few shots of the front of the house at its foggiest.
