Other than Florida you’re not going to get too much further South than New Orleans. It’s cold outside. It’s Winter remember? Those who, for heath reasons or other, head due South in the cold, blustery winter-time. In fact, the first time I headed South, was for sure not the last. I love it! The mild temperatures, the southern charm…yum.
All things fabulous indeed. I need to head South to New Orleans. Or maybe Florida this winter, lol.
An artist site should have posts of art, and special images, antiques, or lovely furnishings for the world to enjoy.
Odd, old, or ugly, art is subjective, yet art is art. For instance, I purchased several paintings from a lady named Loralee, a portrait of myself and my husband, and another portrait of a lady I call “blueberry brain”, reminding me much of myself. They’re awesome, and very different. I will post the photographs soon, of some of the art I myself enjoy.
Post your artwork online, right here on our New Orleans Art site, and remember…Louisiana is more than just New Orleans.
When I first moved here from St. Louis, Mo. there was a sure “good-feeling”, as the Southern hospitality of everyone, everywhere, in Louisiana was obvious. It’s a nice place to live, tropical weather year-round, and very comforting to be away from the hustle and bustle of a larger metropolitan area.
Do I fit in, I suppose I do. The people are friendly and not overly friendly (if you know what I mean?). The neighbors are warm and inviting, but keep to their own, yet you feel comfortable knowing there seems to be good people all around you.
I love to travel. Who knows where I’ll end up next. I always wanted a Condo on the beachs of Key West. Now that would be a dream come true. Until then, I’m chillin’ in Carencro, Louisiana.
Teens love New Orleans, but be careful. Like every big city, it can be dangerous.
New Orleans has been known for it’s care-free, party life, art, artists, and the food, and a very attractive place for teens, especially graduating teens to flock. However, if you’re a teen and planning a trip to New Orleans then read every post on our site. From the mean streets that every big town has, there are things you need to be aware of, or can do to be safe in New Orleans, or anywhere for that matter.
We love all people, so teens, please beware of traveling.
Visiors to the lovely State of Louisiana are quickly finding out that Louisiana is more than just the quaint “Big-Easy”, New Orleans. True, it’s New Orleans that put Lousiana on the map, but consider all the other charming cities of New Orleans, including all the small breath-taking small towns like Carencro, Lafayette, New Iberia, Maurice, Shreveport, and others.
There are as many ways to do a craw fish boil as there are ways to cook ground beef.
First, and foremost, you need:
30 to 40 pounds sack of live Louisiana Crawfish.
1 large 26 ounce of box salt used for purging
2 boxes or sacks of traditional Crawfish Boil Seasoning and 6 to 8 lemons slicked in halves
At least 20 ears of fresh corn on the cob or depending on the size of the group invited to the crawfish boil.
Then you need,
Small onions, peeled and place whole into the boil, or Large Onions cut in half.
Smoked sausage cut however you like it, or left whole
Small red potatoes left whole or large red potatoes cut in half
Don’t order the live crawfish too soon, wait until the day or the day before the crawfish boil.
6 to 10 heads of whole garlic
There are quaint areas of Louisiana that just scream, “Visit me!”, such as in the Pink Moon Guest House – Bed and Breakfast in New Iberia, Louisiana. It’s close enough to New Orleans you can smell the gumbo.
I visited Constance at her lovely home. I have never seen anywhere as charming. You can visit her site here, and make sure to mention you saw her on our New Orleans Artists site so as to get a special cup of “cool”.

My definition of a gallery would be an ever-changing series of photo events posted, or displayed in some way that would stir the viewers imagination or intrique them in a way as to teach, or to touch them emotionally. What is an art gallery, the definitions of art gallery on the web do vary…
Definitions of art gallery on the Web:
- gallery: a room or series of rooms where works of art are exhibited
- An art gallery or art museum is a building or space for the exhibition of art, usually visual art. Museums can be public or private, but what distinguishes a museum is the ownership of a collection. …
- Like a shooting gallery, only with paintings instead of tin ducks, and critics instead of rifles.
Please tell us your experience in an art gallery!
