Photos from recent solo show at The Foundation Gallery in New Orleans!

Here are some pics from my first solo show at The Foundation Gallery in New Orleans. The show opened on White Linen Night, August 3rd, 2013 and lasted for 2 months. This is a yearly event in August where all the galleries open at the same time and there is a big street party. They set up stages with music, there are drinks and lots and lots of ART. It’s a great, fun time!  Read more about The Foundation Gallery and their wonderful model for non-profit charity here:

Several people enjoyed taking photos with the drawing of Jillaine Gill looking down, trying to make themselves look like Jillaine. It was funny!

I stood next to the entrance most of the night next to my portrait and held a sign that said “The Artist” and waited to see the realization in people’s faces when they saw it. Some people took a surprisingly long time to get it! By the end of the night, my face really hurt from smiling and laughing so much.
