Symbols of New Orleans: Cathedral and Banana Trees art print

In all my New Orleans art I try to use the every day symbols of my city. Like this Cathedral and Banana Trees print I use the Water Meter Cover, Steam Boats, Oysters, Crawfish, and other images unique to New Orleans. I have been told several times my New Orleans art captures the feel and soul of my home town. Living here over 60 years has impressed me with a feel for what is unique in New Orleans.

Oysters and Satsumas are things we find in New Orleans in the fall. I need to do more combinations like this one. I love both of these Louisiana products.
