"Laissez les bons temps rouler!"

Oil on museum quality ampersand gessobord panel - 8" x 10"

Attention shoppers! Yes, this month's Diana Moses Botkin's challenge is shopping. I was in New Orleans recently, which is why there has been no new work here lately, NOT because I've lost the spark. These girls were in a souvenir shop trying on masks and boas and were kind enough to acquiesce to an impromptu modeling session.

My fellow challengees had some fun takes on the subject:

OK, Mark, I need a translation! Continue to be amazed how you get such detail in such a small size...and retain looseness!

Sorry, Vicki. You seem like such a free spirit I thought you'd know. Laissez les bons temps rouler means "Let the good times roll!"
