Seasons Greetings from New Orleans. 2013 marks my first full year returning to my hometown. New Orleans is a city that has far exceeded my already high expectations. I continue to appreciate the wonderful live music (mostly free), food, culture and friendly people.
This is also the year I shifted my main focus from technology to painting. So I am starting a holiday tradition of a season themed painting. This year it is “Santa’s Little Peppers” (16” x 20”) seen bellow. It is the type of treat a New Orleans Santa might appreciate.
The best way to easily see most of my paintings for sales is to go to my Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/bill.ives2 - and look at Photos and albums within Photos. I have three photo albums covering my art. One is for discounted pairings under $100. The other is for most of the rest (over $100). The third is for paintings that I have either sold or ones that are not for sale. However, if anyone is interested in them I will paint another version for them on commission. I will ship anywhere and have shipped art works as far as Australia.
In New Orleans there are currently paintings hanging at two of my favorite New Orleans restaurants. One is the music club with great food, Buffa's. It is open 24/7 and is located at 1001 Esplanade Ave. (504) 949-0038. Hera is a post on the opening: My Paintings Are Up at Buffa's Backroom. The other is Riccobono's Panola Street Cafe. Here is a post describing the showing. It is located at 7801 Panola Street (504 314-1810). You can also contact me to see more of them.
Wishing you a happy holidays and great 2014.
