The Way We Were II was crated by collaging  prints on paper of two of my pre-Katrina paintings. For many months after Katrina, our beautiful coast looked like it had been hit by a nuclear blast. Before the storm however, it was a lush and beautiful place that I could not stay away from, nor keep myself from painting its glory. This collage incorporates two different scenes from Bayou Caddy in Hancock County, which was a busy port for local shrimpers and fishermen.
