"Follow Your Dreams" 16" X 7" Fluid Acrylic

“New Orleans is the only place I know of where you ask a little kid what he wants to be and instead of saying, I want to be a policeman, or I want to be a fireman, he says, I want to be a musician.” – Alan Jaffe, Jazz Musician and Founder of Preservation Hall

I think the quote from Alan Jaffe says it all about this painting.  This young man was high school age, playing in the streets of New Orleans during the French Quarter Jazz Fest. 

We saw street musicians from barely ten years old up to very accomplished masters, who added to the "official" music of Jazz Fest. The area in Jackson Square, just outside one of the official stadiums of the Fest, seemed like a favorite spot. Three kids, ranging from 10 - early teens sat down next to us one day, placed their plastic buckets upside down in front of them, and drummed away for the public.  They were really good.  I didn't photograph them, but will never forget them.
