The "Feelings Cafe" is located on Chartres Street in New Orleans, Louisiana. It is advertised to be one of the most romantic restaurants in New Orleans with a piano bar, beautiful courtyard and wonderful atmosphere.
My oldest son, Jason, asked me to paint this restaurant because it is a special place for he and his wife, Kristen. Jason proposed to Kristen there.
When I went on my quest for a photograph of the building to paint from, I didn't do my homework and he forgot to mention to me it was the inside courtyard area he wanted. Well, you guessed it, I took pictures of the outside...oops. That is where my artistic editing license came into play. I went ahead and painted the outside and plan to return another day for photographs of the inside.
But....doesn't it look really romantic from the outside?
