Crescent City Shotgun House 20″ x 20″ oil on linen

Unique and charming shotgun houses of New Orleans in bright, happy colors and exotic banana leaves.

Shot gun houses get their name from being able to shoot a shotgun shell through the house from the front door to the back without hitting anything along the way.  This is because there are no hallways but a progression of rooms.  Shotgun homes are generally long and narrow on narrow lots and typical of a New Orleans style home.
