“Café au Lait & Beignets” Day 28 of 30 Paintings in 30 Days

"Cafe au Lait & Beignets"

You’re in New Orleans. It’s the morning after one of those nights. You head down to Cafe Du Monde in the French market. You get a cafe au lait. And of course and order of beignets, with about eight inches of powdered sugar on top. There’s a jazz quartet playing on the sidewalk about 10 yards from your table. Temperature is 75 degrees. Life is pretty darn good.

I’m doing a painting each day this month. 30 paintings in 30 days. Being November, the Month of the Feast, the theme is Things We Love to Eat and Drink.

A painting a day, and yes, they’re for sale. And they’re affordable: $99, which includes free first-class shipping. You can order on my Etsy store by clicking here. Check this blog every day (or the Etsy store) to see the new painting du jour. Each one will be 5″ by 7″ on sturdy illustration board.

I’ll need some content, folks, so if you have any suggestions for good subjects, leave a comment or write to me at john@tebeau.com. What goodies would you like to see memorialized as art? What’s your favorite comfort food? Your most-loved childhood treat? The hometown food you miss most? If you moved away tomorrow, what local specialty would you long for? And, looking ahead, what other themes would you suggest?
