Chef Chad of Charlie's
The Naturally N'awlins painting has found its home at Charlie's Restaurant & Catering in Violet, Louisiana. Home of the best Gumbo in the State of Louisiana! Chef Chad is a three-time winner of the United Way's "Got Gumbo Cook Off" and the current champion. I took a drive down to Violet yesterday to hang the paintings and eat a delicious cajun lunch. I highly recommend the Overtuffed Shrimp.
The inspiration for my latest painting comes from a memory at the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas. When I visit I am fascinated by the Tarpon swimming in circles. I can watch them for hours. Keep updated for the finished result.
Tarpon Fun Facts:
I've decided to branch out and try abstract painting for fun! I really enjoy breaking the rules by playing with color and not worrying about painting inside the lines. Definitely a great exercise for working out the creative mind.
I'm excited New Orleans will be hosting the 2013 Superbowl. This will be the ninth Superbowl New Orleans has hosted! I was lucky enough to get a chance to be up close with this year's trophy while a NFL camera crew was shooting film right in front of the gallery! The city has been very busy getting ready for event and so has MC Romaguera Studio. I will have many new paintings to display in time for all the visitors, so stay tuned to see the latest in my creative works.
