This quarantine was a strange time, and I developed an addiction to beads 😄! It’s so joyful, almost meditative, to just add more beads on top of others, like it happens here for Mardi Gras. I don’t think about a composition, or harmony of colors, or anything: I don’t think that the people on the floats do either ... it makes each of my Mardi Gras trees unique. And believe me, they are so pleasant to live with! I just finished this one last night. 20”x60”. A lot of texture,! #isabellejacopin#mardigrastree#mardigras#mardigras2020#nola#neworleansculture#neworleans#neworleansart

Joe Derr's lighthearted, abstract figures have been a favorite of contemporary art collectors for decades. Viewers in search of an escape into a playful imaginary world will find these sculptures captivating.
Joe is best known for his creative and whimsical wooden sculptures. Tall, slender, and lithe sculptured women in a wide variety of situational poses, these unique sculptures are hand crafted using at least 90 hand-sawn and carved pieces of wood. Depending on his latest inspiration, the final outcome can be a single elegant diva, a dancing couple, or an entire vignette of figures of different themes.
Working strictly from a mental image, Mr. Derr builds his figures from pieces of hand cut wood that are nailed, glued and doweled together. These many intricately carved pieces of wood come together as a striking sculpture which he then primes and paints the details in a palette of vivid colors. The active, and often exaggerated brush strokes he uses seem to breathe life into the figures. Combined with the raw sculpture emerges an image with a strong presence and often a “diva-like” attitude. Joe Derr is a self-taught artist from Reading, Pennsylvania, but currently and proudly claims New Orleans home! Joe has held exhibitions in New York, Philadelphia, Hawaii, Los Vegas, Key West, Miami, Bermuda and Acapulco; his sculptures are collected worldwide. He has won numerous awards for his artwork.

After two and a half months of lockdown and self isolation it makes you reflect what you have missed. I really miss my family of my #Whitworld friends. We used to see each other quite often sometime to discuss a book in #bookclub or celebrating a holiday like #mardigras or #newyear or to try our hands on some new #cuisine in our #cookingclub. It was more than fun and meant a lot to most of us living in US and calling it home. We laughed together and sometimes cried too. We opened up our hearts to each other and helped one another in their low moments. I really miss all my #Whitworld friends and can’t wait to see them again in person after all this is over❤️❤️❤️ .
I take this opportunity to submit my last entry to @luciebeck#onlyonedrink challenge which helped me think out of the box and I saw myself growing with every new challenge. .
P&O IONA parte para seu primeiro teste marítimo.
Após ser reposicionado do estaleiro Meyer Werft para Bremerhaven em Março deste ano, o novo carro-chefe da @pandocruises partiu no último dia 29 de Maio para mar aberto para realizar seus primeiros testes marítimos.
Assim que todos os testes estiverem concluídos, o navio parte para as docas secas do estaleiro Damen, em Rotterdam, onde o navio permanecerá fora d'água para manutenção e preparo para a entrega oficial para a companhia. A viagem inaugural que estava marcada para Maio, infelizmente teve de ser adiada.
A nova data de entrega está prevista para a metade de junho. O atraso, entretanto, não deve ter grande impacto para os passageiros, já que os cruzeiros afetados já haviam sido cancelados.
Pertencente à classe Helios, que tem também representantes na Costa Crociere (Costa Smeralda), na AIDA Cruises (AIDAnova & AIDAcosma) e na Carnival Cruise Line (Mardi Gras). Na lista de um dos maiores do mundo, o IONA tem 337 metros de comprimento, 42 metros de largura, uma arqueação bruta de 180.000GT, podendo acomodar até 5 mil passageiros.

From the archives ⚜️ One of my most favorite tattoos of my favorite Princess 💜💛💚 I’ve been watching HBOs Treme the past week and I loved this love letter to Nola post Katrina set in one of the hardest hit neighborhoods. There are many themes approached in this show including corruption, injustice and police brutality on all races It’s appalling that nothing has changed since 2005, let alone the decades and centuries of hate that occurred before this true life time they portrayed. If you love New Orleans culture, truly, I highly recommend you watch this! So many real life musicians and chefs were used as actors playing themselves. You can see how much of a passion project this was. I also suggest you watch the Nola episode of Somebody Feed Phil on Netflix where Phil Rosenthal tours the amazing city and meets with one of the main actors of the show. Then also watch it all... he makes me so happy! I want to do ALL the Princess and the Frog tattoos! #nola#neworleans#neworleanstattoo#nolatattoo#hiddenmickey#beignets#cafedumonde#tiana#tianatattoo#princessandthefrogtattoo#princessandthefrog#jazz#jazztattoo#trumpet#mardigras #disney#disneytattoo#disneytattooartist#waltdisney#needlejig#quickcaps#bishoprotary
