Art: Jazz Funeral by Artist Melanie Douthit
Most common in New Orleans, a jazz funeral is a funeral procession with music. It's more common for to have jazz funerals for musicians or people connected to the music industry. The music is usually upbeat and is more of a celebration of the person's life. I wanted to capture the essence of a jazz funeral in the French Quarter in this French Quarter painting/sketch.
