New Orleans has really fuelled my creative ideas. My latest picture explored the relationship between the Mardi Gras parade and the Crowd. As first there seems to be so much energy, colour and noise in the parade compared to the quiet onlookers. But without the crowd the parade would be without meaning. It seems to me that the the seemingly dominant part is really a victim at the hands of the passive element. My latest painting invites the viewer to pay attention to the crowd rather that the razamataz of the parade.
