Flambette, Protector of Parader-Goers

Flambette, Protector of Parader-Goers


Call me Flambette. I carry a torch for the traditions of old New Orleans. I light the way to Carnivals of the future. I will keep your krewe safe and happy on the parade route. My signature throw is joy.

Dimensions: 12x16 oil on clayboard

The magic of the 12x16 original paintings comes from the artist laying down and removing oil paint during his process. 

Garland uses different techniques to achieve the mysterious results, always experimenting and letting the music guide his brushes. Most pieces are painted on clay fired boards that are set into substantial wooden cradles creating a ready to hang work of art.

Artist’s Note: Many nighttime parades in New Orleans are lit by torch carriers called flambeaux. It is a tradition that goes back to the day before there were street lamps.
