New Orleans is certainly a mecca of artists. We have been ignoring this New Orleans artists blog, we’ve been very busy with building all sorts of web-sites that will appeal to the masses.
I remember when I started this blog. It was one of the first blogs I wrote. It was a favorite for sure. I’ve always loved New Orleans, most people do once they visit the great city that I term a mecca of artists. One walk down any street in the French Quarter or a ride through the Garden District clearly helps you see the city is filled with art and antiques. If you’re a New Orleans artist you can be listed on this site at no cost, giving your web-site and details. Please contact me at email@example.com to let me know if you would like a listing.

New Orleans artists seem to enjoy personalized wristbands. At least the group of artists I just met!
During my morning walk down St. Marie Street in the French Quarter of New Orleans I ran into a group of artists. Of course I was seeking out artists. I love New Orleans.
On my way to my favorite cafe during my morning jolt outdoors I said hello to a male passerby. He stopped and laughed, teasing his friend, asking me to compare personalized wristbands. It seems he’s never met a stranger.
It also seems the group of artists who were interrupting my morning walk were a part of a nice-size New Orleans art club, This group of artists was hosting a personalized wristband original design contest. How interesting.. I had never thought of personalized wristbands as being art. “What is art? Is it everything pleasing to the eye! What is art to you is different than for me!” Art is so subjective.
Tony was right. That was the passersby name., Tony.
Tony had a black and white design that had engraved on it “In the midst of darkness I shall find light”. The words wrapped around the silicon wristlet and struck my eye. His friends wristband was cool too. The color he chose was a bright blue with black and white print. In black print the engraving said, “With Whom” and in white engraving next to the black were the words, “To Trust”. Each wrist band was very unique. The wristbands were truly a work of art.

Having a hard time figuring out what to do in New Orleans? Part of the reason we created this New Orleans Artists blog was to give artist-seeking-enthusiasts a site to visit that is visual and also offers information on things to do in New Orleans. If you’ve never been to New Orleans, planning a trip, and don’t know what there is to do in the “Big-Easy” then it’s as simple as heading to the French Quarter and starting there. Obviously there are pubs and jazz-joints everywhere, and obviously the culture, the vintage stores, antiques, and ambiance is amazing. There’s never a shortage of things to do in New Orleans. I’m big on never making an itinerary, because I don’t want to be locked in to a certain strict schedule. When I’m traveling I prefer to “cuff-it” as I call it, making just one or two “have-to-do-things” on a list, and letting the rest of the trip “go with the flow”.
What to do in New Orleans? The first thing you can do is search this site. It lists fun things to do in a city that truly never sleeps.

Art imitating life? Never!
I am unsure why I want to write an article on art imitating life, except for the fact that the cliche’ quote is something I have always heard. What does art imitating life mean?
I suppose the quote means something different to everyone. As for myself, the saying art imitating life means my life is a piece of art. My life is created from a blank canvas, to be whatever it is I choose. As a child I loved to paint and draw, but I was never very good at it. I admired other artistic works, but it had to be real for me, something I could touch or see with my own eyes. I didn’t like to look at images in magazines (when I was a child there was no such thing as online digital images), I preferred to go into a gallery or office building to look at the art hung inside and upon a wall. That’s what art is to me. Art is something tangible that you can touch that makes you feel good, or wonder about other ways of life, culture, experiences, emotion and more!
I realize art is so much more to others. What’s your view of “art imitating life”? My life is perfect, so I suppose I have created a masterpiece, or by the hand of something larger than myself, I even exist.
I’ve never quite figured out my love for art. After all, I’ve tried drawing, painting, ceramics and a host of other artistic endeavors like putting together stained glass windows or sewing. My biggest passion is collecting odd art, things that make me feel good. I only wished I could actually get my fingers involved instead of just my checkbook.
Looking at art, I love it! The beautiful or odd things, inspire most to new levels. Gazing onto something pleasant is an innate love. As beautiful as the earth can be, it seems the grand creator (whatever it is you believe created or caused the earth to be in existence did a darn good job). The earth is a beautiful home.
In fact if you’re enticed enough by a certain atmosphere, be it a well decorated home, a design-on-a-dime home small studio or apartment that’s as charming as the magazines, or love walking through a park of fountains, life is art so please take my advise and let art consume you!
Let life consume you! Art will just be the medicine you take that makes you feel better!
