Original New Orleans Art by Debbie Ainsworth

Crystal Preserves


Frames Not Included

Anyone who has ever driven down Tulane Avenue will recognize the Crystal Preserves sign. Made for a woman who was named after the iconic New Orleans road sign, the painting features the billboard, a rusty guardrail, and wildflowers pushing through the pavement in yellows and pinks. The vibrant green of the sign and blue of the sky work to create a sense of Rockwellian nostalgia. Katrina damaged the original sign, but it was restored and now sits in the same location, making memories for a new generation.

Fine Art Prints

ALL ArtByDArt Fine Art Prints come in a Show Bag with a Backing Board so you can display your print even without a frame. Debbie wanted to be sure it was as easy as possible to display these prints, so she chose sizes that will  fit standard frames available in drugstores, department stores, hobby stores, etc. The frames used in the photographs were purchased from Hobby Lobby. All prints have a border, so matting isn’t necessary.

Also known as Collector’s Editions, Limited Edition fine art prints are rare. When the edition limit is reached, no more will ever be available. Debbie Ainsworth prefers to keep her limited runs to 5000 or less per size. When they’re gone, they’re gone.

Over the moon with the Crystal Preserves painting and the hot sauce and oysters. Debbie is a perfectionist and so many details were carefully thought out and worked great. I’m working on the next one.
