And I'm not even an extremist. For one, the fleur de lis symbol is quite pretty... prettier than #, %, or @, for example. And two, it has become a symbol that represents our cultural identity and history here in South Louisiana. It was a symbol that gave hope, strength and courage to the people of New Orleans and those homes and families were devastated by Hurricane Katrina. And the first time that the New Orleans Saints walked back onto the field at the Superdome, proudly wearing their gold helmets with the black fleur de lis, there wasn't a single dry eye to anyone who has ever called New Orleans "home."
So, it's no surprise that I like to paint fleur de lys. Here are a few samples of paintings that I have done. I hope to be painting a lot more soon!
