The 30th Anniversary New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival Legacy. The Artist’s View
This painting was created in the memory of all musicians, artists, entrepreneurs and staff that died in the past 30 year history of the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.
As in life, energy is in the body. In death, energy leaves the body and returns to its source-the universe. In this picture, the names of the musicians, artists, and entrepreneurs, and staff returns to the universe as stars reflecting light and giving off energy that explodes into images, and thus-leaving the universe in perfect harmony.
Love always and may Peace Be Unto You and your family.
