I am doing a big sale for Christmas of my replica Spanish tile murals found in the French Quarter. These are single 4.5 in square tiles that are assembled to duplicate the murals found in the Quarter. I have several streets and the Place D'Arms on sale. I also do personalized murals. The single tile is under $10. The smaller tile murals are under $70, the larger are under $150. More then half off the original prices. Personalized tile murals are priced higher depending on work involved. Get them now as they will go back up in price. See them http://www.cafepress.com/figstreetstudio/4855160

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.

New Orleans St. Charles Streetcar Postcard by figstreetstudio
Add your photo to postcard designs from Zazzle.
I was standing in a check out line speaking to a lady who was buying some Chinese made art prints. I told her I was a local artist and would love for her to get my art made in America to hang rather then some copy cat Chinese sold prints. I offered to sign them too if she contacted me. She said she would but local art was so expensive. I explained I sell postcards and greeting cards in sizes that fit in picture frames sold at Wall Mart for $5 and the cards are $3, postcards $1 so for under $10 she can have local American art. The discount craft stores too have larger frames for $15 and my prints sell for $5 each so she could have a local art print framed for less then $25. And if she would rather I sell pre-framed prints for under $50. I am willing to sign them to if brought to my studio.
I see no real reason not to buy local art made in America. The prices are low, the sale helps the local economy and not Chinese plants. Look at what I have if you feel you need something different I paint every day and could just paint what you need. Just ask, e-mail me, buy local art, help the local economy. I have hundreds of painting on cards, postcards, prints sold on the web, take a look. Help a local American artist.

Coffee and Donuts from local artist
In homage to Cezanne's "Card Players" I did a coffee drinker for my kitchen and adapted it with doughnuts for a local doughnut shop in New Orleans. I have it on posters, cards, and postcards.
