Back in late August 2005, we moved from Miami to Southwest Florida at the EXACT moment that Hurricane Katrina's winds hit Miami -- we were just getting on Alligator Alley and my husband had a very hard time keeping our pickup on a straight path.

The moving truck was a half-hour behind us and they called to tell us that it went up on 2 wheels and they had to turn back. We made it to the house we rented which was totally empty -- we took outside cushions and put them on the floor to sleep on, and bought blankets and food from the local stores.

The whole next day we heard nothing from the moving company because the phones were out in Miami -- I had visions of all my belongings and many paintings strewn along the highway never to be seen again!! The headline in the local paper was screaming "the levees are going to break"!

After that, I developed a deep love for New Orleans and everything Cajun -- that is when I painted "Mardis Gras Lady".

The photo of the painting in the window was taken at Artemisia Gallery on the Island of Venice, FL
