Louisiana Gothic


18" x 24" edged oil painting.  Wooden edge on the canvas is painted a reddish brown.


This painting was inspired by a photograph of Olivia's grandparents--Epsie and Luther Arthur  and their first child Jewell, who died during the 1918 influenza epidemic. Taken in Florien, Louisiana, the sepia photo that this painting is based on was probably taken by a traveling photographer to the area.
