Galatoire’s

One of my Mega Friends dropped off some special watercolors for me this morning, and I used them to paint this picture of Galatoire’s, my favorite restaurant in New Orleans. John sent me a picture of Galatoire’s the other day. He’s been thinking about it and painting it too, as we’re getting ready for hisContinue reading “Galatoire’s”
