La Fitte's Blacksmith Shop - SOLD

- by Diane Millsap

This week's theme: Bricks

There are few building materials we've been using as long as we've using bricks. They have been used to construct things humble and things grand. They are the walls we live and work in and the sidewalks and roads we travel. When you consider that the oldest brick structures were created by the people of the Neolithic in the Fertile Crescent (Yes, that Fertile Crescent - the one we heard so much about in school.), it's understandable why we still use them as much as we do.


Art: La Fitte's Blacksmith Shop - SOLD by Artist Diane Millsap
Steeped in New Orleans' history and myth, John La Fitte's blacksmith shop is depicted in vibrant, glowing color. This large original oil is painted in Diane's modern Impressionist style, with free-flowing brushwork. It is painted on a 1 1/2" deep gallery wrapped canvas which may be hung unframed, if desired. The edges of the canvas are also painted, and a picture wire kit is included. This is a one-of-a-kind original, and a certificate of authenticity will be enclosed. (Many of Diane's French Quarter scenes are now in print.) ARTIST'S COMMENTS: I chose bold colors, because I thought it fitting for the legend of the colorful character, John La Fitte.
