Scarlet Georgia, oil on antique Congoleum flooring (circa 1920) mounted on aluminum, 72" diameter.

In the Spring 2014 issue of Louisiana Cultural Vistas Magazine, pg. 64. You can also pick up a hard copy of the magazine at The Ogden Museum of Southern Art.

This painting, originally shown at Martine Chaisson Gallery in the exhibition, Memory Logos, is done on old flooring from the early 1920's that I collected many years ago. The image, of a heritage Scarlet Okra blossom, is presented as an ode to a favourite painter/hero, Georgia Okeefe. I'm thrilled that this piece is now in the collection of the "O"!
