While visiting Paris, I saw a picture of Louie Armstrong and upon returning home searched every source I could think for a copy of the image. Unsuccessful in my attempt to locate a copy, I decided to reproduce the image myself adding my own interpretation and my journey began. It was like reuniting with an old and familiar friend that you had not seen in years. I rediscovered a part of myself that had been locked away and a breath of new life seemed to reinvigorate me as I sat down in front of the easel and began to paint. I recreated a new and different image of Louie Armstrong and rekindled a passion, I had long thought forgotten.
