Stone Bridge City Park New Orleans

Stone Bridge City Park card
Stone Bridge City Park by figstreetstudio
JK Schwehm, artist

I take a lot of photos of places I love in my city. I grew up walking in City Park and hanging out around this Stone Bridge. I have painted it in acrylics a few times. I use the photos I take to paint from. In the above picture I recently took I used software to make a new fall composition to paint at a later date. This computer generated composition came out so interesting I put it on a greeting card. As my time is limited it may be a while until I get to paint it so I now have it to enjoy to then.

Mid City Garage Studio

 Just completed another place to paint. I spend a lot of time in the city so I have converted a garage into a small studio space for me to paint in while in New Orleans. My bigger studio in the country is nice but often I stay in the city and now can also paint there. It is located in Mid City right off Canal and the streetcar line so people are welcome to visit when I am there just contact me first. I am back and forth between both place but not on a regular schedule so knowing when I am available is the key to any visit. So you know it is a small studio spot for painting, nothing elaborate or impressive. I leave the impression to the art and not the space.

I also park my scooter in the garage studio, multi purpose place.

Fig Street Studio: Sale of art and shirts in Japan

Fig Street Art Studio sells art and t shirts in Japan:

 Thanks to the world wide web my art, gift, and t shirts are sold in Japan. Every now and then a sale is made there, usually a comical American style t shirt. Although the fancy art shoes and neck ties have sold too in the past. Not only Japan but in Europe. I hope more people there learn of my art sales so I am trying to market in that direction.

My Town: Chicago

 Sometime ago for a friend I designed them a special shirt as they were from Chicago. I do this as an exercise in design to see how well it goes. Since then this design has sold a lot on my store on the web. Also a Philadelphia Cheese Steak design I did for a guy in Florida who opened up a sandwich shop. Although I am based in New Orleans and have a lot of New Orleans themed designs I do not limit myself. If the request is something I have time to do I will do it. I enjoy creating art sometimes just for the sake of art.

Geaux Purple and Gold T Shirt

Geaux Purple and Gold T Shirt from a LSU grad:

Yes, I went to LSU and that is where I learned art. I always have made my own shirts. Why go buy something someone else did when I do shirts, graphic art, and fine art all week long. I often wonder why local people do not shop for local products. So when I support something I do my own. My house is full of my art, my closet full of my shirts, and yes neck ties too. This year my college team is doing well so I celebrate that and wear my Geaux in Purple and Gold.

New Orleans Style Coffee and Doughnuts: Beignets

In New Orleans the coffee is blended with chicory, a ground root used to extend the coffee. Some say it makes the coffee taste stronger. Many coffee shops have come and gone in New Orleans but Café du Monde has stayed for well over 100 years. I wonder if Starbucks will last that long. The key is the special doughnuts. French style pastries called "Beignets". As an artist I celebrate my life growing up in New Orleans by painting and creating icons of my city. The coffee and doughnuts have become a part of that culture and part of my art. I have them on posters, cards, invitations, shirts and more. Follow the links by clicking an image to see the product I sell from my New Orleans art studio.
