This painting is based on three photographs I took last weekend in New Orleans. There were a group of musicians on Royal street and the little boy was part of it. I think he was just there for the cute factor. He was holding the trumpet upside down most of the time. I think? You musicians may correct me. He looks a little older in my rendition of him. He was still wearing diapers. The background is just a loose interpretation of a building I saw. This is a large painting for me. It is painted on an 18 x 36" gallery wrap canvas.
