PAINTING INFO

L'il Liza Jane is one of my favorite New Orleans songs and I knew I'd create a piece of art with that as the title, but I didn't know this was it until about half-way through creating it. It just seemed right.

 

The song is both incredibly familiar to anyone who's spent time in New Orleans, but also a bit engimatic as there are hundreds of versions and it dates back into the 1800's with no single definitive version of the song or the lyrics.

 

I like to think my Liza Jane is also both familiar and enigmatic. You feel comfortable with her right away, yet you want to know more about her.

 

I started this one out with a very heavy black and white theme in my head, and was thinking it would be a direct nod to the Zulu Krewe of New Orleans, and their specific look. But shortly after I began working on the main painting portion I quickly changed direction and went with more of a feminine approach.

 

I incorporated more physical elements into this one than in previous pieces I've done. This has feathers, pearls, beads, metal, and glass in just the mask portion alone.

AVAILABLE for viewing and purchase.
