Café du Monde, Jackson Square, great food and music all converge at the Pontablas on Decatur in the French Quarter! Being at this spot, in the early evening, listening to the sounds of jazz from the street and the calliope playing on the riverboats while having a cup of hot café au lait is the essence of being in New Orleans.

I painted this piece with strong contrasts of warm and cool, bringing to life the feel of the late afternoon sun still bright in the sky while cool deep blue and violet shadows are developing along the edges.
