I love the complexity and patterns of city plans! It's fascinating to roam with your eye over the different grids, to notice how they may or may not reflect the topography, to consider which came first and later. The image of the Crescent City is captured in my watercolor city blocks map of The Big Easy. I love how the grid is splayed out upon that beautiful "crescent" of the Mississippi River, comprising the Garden District. St. Charles, Tulane, Audubon, the French Quarter, the City Park and Museum of Art, Metairie Cemetery, Algiers are all included within the map. New Orleans is truly one of the great city plans of the world!

The painting shown is a variegation of green, grey and grey-green.
