I just hung a new painting show at the Louisiana Pizza Kitchen Uptown in New Orleans. It is located at 615 Carrolton Ave. (504) 866-5900. The hours are Sunday - Thursday 11am - 9:30pm and an extra half hour later on Friday and Saturday. The current ownership of the Uptown location has been in place for over 14 years. Rob the owner, does much of the cooking himself. It was one of the first restaurants to reopen after Hurricane Katrina. Even though its known for its gourmet, wood-fired pizzas, they are also many tasty pasta dishes, savory salads and delicious wraps. I especially like their pastas and have sampled a number of them.
There are 26 paintings and two themes for the show, my third in a restaurant in New Orleans. On one side is the food, music, and architecture of New Orleans. On the other side the food and landscape of Samos Island, Greece is covered. I have gone there several times as I have a friend whose family home is located in Mytilini, a mountain village on the island. I always paint while I am there. This is the first time I have shown Samos paintings, shown in the lower right.
If you are not in New Orleans please come on down. If you cannot, the best way to easily see most of my paintings for sale 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.
