Laissez les Bon Temps Roulez!!!!

Let the Good Times Roll!!  Growing up in Louisiana i was groomed on mudbugs(yes this is one word), everything hot and spicy, and madi gras! Yes, i come from Louisiana were you didn't realize that mardi gras was not a national holiday until you left the state.  Growing up in a small town we didn't make it to the big easy but almost every town in the great state of the boot celebrates with beads(no flashing required), great food, and crazy parades!

I am totally mesmerized by this woman.  I have no idea who she is, since i googled 30's burlesque woman and found a black and white photo of her with no caption.  I truly believe that if every woman could hold this much sex appeal with just one gaze, we would rule the world.  Now you all know its true, i mean I'm a straight woman who loves her man dearly, but when i finished this painting i couldn't quite take my eyes off of her!  So, my hope is that you cant either!!!!!
