Art from the NOLA art festival

I went to the NOLA art festival a couple of weeks ago. Local artists come and set up booths to show their art and I came home with the cutest little canvas art pieces. One is a mardi gras mask, the second is of Pat O's, the next is the cutest little crab ever, and the last is of the street car "Desire".
I love that all the sides are painted the same. It is green with a fleur de lis on the side.

I tried to get some pics that really sh0w the detailing and texture they have. The crabs eyes poke out.
The best part of it all is that she has many more to choose from. I had a very hard time narrowing it down to these 4. I want to add one that has an alligator, one with red beans and rice, crawfish, one of the cathedral, and many more. So, I have started a collection that I will be adding to over the years. I plan on filling up the wall.
