Day 5, Guardian of Carnival, Mardi Gras

Day 5, Guardian of Carnival. 11″ x 14″, acrylic on paper, $75.00

Today’s painting for the #30paintingsin30days is inspired by a childhood in New Orleans. Each year we would put on costumes and make our way to a lovely home on St. Charles Avenue where we spent the day watching parades, eating well, and catching beads and doubloons.

A colorful day.

A police siren, a person falling under a float.

A comatose person in the median.

A friend aboard a float throwing great handfuls of beads.

Navigating around ladders holding children at float level.

Deciding on a worthy opponent for the flying doubloons.

The nuns? No! Super hero speed and strength in long black habits.

We all need a Guardian of some kind. Especially on a day like Mardi Gras.
