Leroy Jones at Donnas Bar 2010

It’s five years since I met Leroy Jones in New Orleans at Donna’s Bar during the
2010 French Quarter Festival.

He won’t remember me now, but when I asked him if I could take photos, not just one or two, but a whole selection for a portrait I aimed to paint of him, he was happy for me to do so. A lot of water has passed under the bridge since then but I finally got to the portrait so here it is. Next on my list, KatjaToivola at Donna’s Bar. By the way, is Donna’s Bar still there on Rampart Street?
