I’ve created a new original painting to represent New Orleans’ Krewe of Red Beans’ “Feed the Front Lines” program. Check out the nola.com story here.
The Red Beans Krewe has created a program that hires out-of-work musicians to deliver large orders of food from our local restaurants to doctors, nurses, and first responders. This beautiful symbiosis is uplifting our community by bringing love to the healthcare workers on the front lines, and providing jobs to our beloved musicians who cannot perform due to COVID-19. I’m proud to be on the artist team putting out imagery to boost the program! 4 visual artists have been commissioned to create illustrations inspired by a front lines photo taken by photographer Katie Sikora. This particular illustration features the Blue Louisiana Iris as a symbol of unity, and the Yerba Santa flower is also pictured on top of a pair of lungs. Yerba Santa has properties that ease breathing and emotionally assist in the processing of grief.
