John Ross Palmer created "The French Quarter" specifically for the 2019 Trees of Hope Gala. After taking input and receiving inspiring imagery from the gala co-chairs, Palmer brought New Orleans to life through the vibrancy of his popular Carnivale style. Palmer segmented the New Orleans street scene into distinct environments - just like each block of the actual French Quarter is its own little world. While the painting is stacked full of activity, movement, and color, it is anchored by a happy resident on a daytime stroll and elevated with a piece of powerful blue sky.
