Lama's Seafood Market

The Lama’s Seafood Market was a hot spot in New Orleans for New Orleanians to get their seafood. The market has been closed for many years. Currently, there plans to reopen the market. The original name was the St. Roch Market. It was built in 1875. I was inspired to paint this since my grandfather use to do all their sign work. In this painting, I took my time to duplicate his style of painting. The signs in the painting are depicted as he would have done. The green car in the bottom right is a green LTD that my father drove. I have painted my dad in the car. This is one of my favorite paintings.
