Mardi Gras Art Prints-Absolutely Enchanting! 25% Off-Buy Today!

Commissioned to paint Noah’s Ark as a poster for the 2006 New Orleans Mardi Gras was an incredible opportunity. The client who hired me for this freelance job gave me free-reign (music to my artistic ears)! This allowed me to paint the animals and ark any way I wanted. And I used my whimsical style, which the client loved. This was the most fun freelance job I’ve ever experienced! Mardi Gras art prints are available as giclee prints.

Mardi Gras Art Prints

Noah’s Animals

Noah’s Ark is a fanciful giclee art print. To illustrate, it features playful animals in pairs afloat in the ‘sea’ of the Mardi Gras parade. And the playful pairs of animals all join in the Mardi Gras celebration. They throw the beads into the sea, play music and dance among the confetti floating through the air.

Dressed up penguins are standing on either end of the ark throwing beads into the sea. Likewise, one of the toucans, wearing a party hat, sits on top of the Bourbon Street lamp post. And the elephant holds the post up with his trunk.

Furthermore, mice, raccoons, ladybugs and puffins join in this upbeat Mardi Gras celebration. Tropical fish play and throw beads over to the starfish who are dancing on top of the water surrounding the ark. Two sea-horses wearing fancy beads sit atop the billowy waves

The Ark

The ark resembles a Dutch-like design with beautiful flowers painted across its body. Two lovely butterflies flutter around the ark. The pieces of colorful confetti float through the sky around them. And Westie dogs poke their inquisitive heads out through portholes. This delightful painting would look great in a kids room. Anywhere you want to present a colorful, fun and uplifting feeling, this print would fit the bill.

My decorative, open metal cuff bracelets are hand-etched and hand-hammered, which gives them a textural, contemporary look. They are designed in a free-form style. Cuffs vary in widths. Lightweight and durable, aluminum is the material used for my cuff. bracelets. Aluminum is safe to wear because it is non-toxic. Furthermore, aluminum is hypoallergenic and does not tarnish or rust.

The painting features what they are passionate about in their life. The person’s essence is then captured in the artwork. For instance, World Traveler was for someone who loved to travel and adored elephants.

LifeExpressions paintings are created on either a 10″x10″ or 12″x12″ cradled substrate called, Claybord. This substrate is archival and acid-free. These are the only sizes I offer for this type of work. The finished painting is protected with several coats of satin (low-sheen) UV acrylic polymer varnish which is resistant to chemicals, water, abrasion and ultraviolet radiation. Also, I paint the sides of the cradled panel with acrylic acid free, museum quality paint. Cradled panels allow you to hang your work with no additional framing.
