Tooker's Camp at Indian Village Landing

Tooker's Camp at Indian Village Landing, link to blog story- Camp Painting

One of the main attractions at Indian Village along the West Pearl River near Slidell, LA was “Tooker’s Camp”. Tooker was a colorful fellow for a local town who had a made up hot tub on his front porch and a stop sign. Of that collection of photos I got around to painting his camp but made it up as a starry night with a fried egg moon. Like a Van Gogh. Tooker would have liked it that way. The painting is sold as prints, cards, tiles, and many gift items

 All around the Indian Village Landing are camps used as weekend homes to people who love to fish. Catfish are plentiful there and good times had by many local people who drive and boat in to stay the weekend. As I would canoe there I took pictures then painted a few camps, Tooker's is my favorite fishing camp painting.
 The camps and area were also used in a music video by Sheryl Crow.
