It's a chilly, windy 31 out there but St. Louis revelers will let the bon temps rouler. Our Soulard neighborhood, just south of downtown is home to one of the largest Mardi Gras celebrations in the world, number 3 I have heard. My husband and I are not going because we have out-of-town friends to meet for dinner elsewhere this evening. But my sons and their krewes will participate in style.
Here is a painting that expresses the excitement and energy of a Mardi Gras day. It won an Honorable Mention from juror Don Getz in a juried exhibition sponsored by the Saint Louis Watercolor Society in 2004. Prints are available in my Etsy shop or on Bonanzle.
