What do the once dull, panel-covered now revealed and gorgeous beadboard walls of Camp Dularge need to enhance their beauty?
How about some original artwork?
My friend and fabulous artist, Ellen, was very open to the idea of displaying some of her original artwork and prints on the walls of the camp.
Because her pulp paintings have a Louisiana theme, they compliment the ambiance of the camp completely.
This one, called Big Redfish, is the largest of her pulp paintings. She has done an excellent job of capturing the essence of this game fish! One of the most sought-after species, they are delicious fried, grilled, and in a savory soup called court bouillon.
This is Ellen’s version of a “blue crab”. However, I think he’s just coming out of the boiling pot! Blue crabs are a staple of many a bayou diet. We enjoy them boiled, in a stew, gumbo, and stuffed.
Of course, this is art work and not table fare; and while it seems we eat just about anything that comes out of the water, one thing is for certain–we will never go hungry.
In days to come, she will be placing more of her pieces in the camp for others to enjoy and purchase. Until then, please visit her site and enjoy all her talents there. She has some amazing renditions of old houses in New Orleans. If you don’t know what pulp paintings are, you can learn that on her site as well. It is quite an interesting process. Each piece is unique and one of a kind. I wish her great success with her art!
