Cajun House & Outhouse ©

(Original Sold at Auction)

This cypress home & adjacent outhouse silently stand as historical records of a bygone way of life endured at Laurel Valley Plantation. Located 6 miles below Thibodaux, Louisiana, Laurel Valley (established in 1770 by Acadian exile Etienne Boudreaux) is the site of the largest remaining, most intact, turn-of-the century, sugar plantation complex in the southern United States. This painting was done from the artist’s photograph taken in 1999.

This painting was done shortly after the movie "Crazy in Alabama" was filmed in downtown Houma, Louisiana. The movie, directed by Antonio Banderas & starring his wife, Melanie Griffith, was set in the early 1960's & called for some retrograding of Houma's main street. Part of that process included the painting of this prominent billboard, advertising Smoky Row's fried chicken & coca-cola ®.

This unruly -- yet beguiling & beloved -- woody vine, of showy purplish flowers, runs amuck in many a grand mère's yard.

Abandoned in the late 1960s, this house of worship once played a center role in the lives of African-Americans in Lafourche Parish. Probably rendered useless by a hurricane, it sits nestled aside Highway 20, between Thibodaux & Chackbay. This sepia toned painting (in the intaglio / etched style) was created based upon a compilation of photographs taken by the artist in 2002.

"Krewes" are groups that create elaborate costumes & floats for the many Mardi Gras parades in the two weeks leading up to “Fat Tuesday” (the day before Ash Wednesday & the beginning of the Lenten Season for Catholics.) Krewes participate in the parades & hold balls during the carnival season, which lasts from Christmas up to Mardi Gras itself. "Krewe" is only an imitation of an old-fashioned spelling of crew in its standard meaning, but the word, thanks to its association with Mardi Gras, has taken on some of the mystique of the carnival. This piece was designed for sale as a poster in the gift shop of the National Park Service Jean Lafitte System. It incorporates the towns & associated krewes for this particular region:

...proudly owned (or taken possession of) by Jackie Junot, who is the artist’s daughter. Jackie, who is Down syndrome, lives for Christmas, enduring every other major holiday as a count down towards the yuletide season. When her father was creating this piece for a promo, Jackie just assumed that he was painting it for her...the self-appointed keeper of Christmas. Read all about Jackie.
