This one-of-a-kind unframed original pencil and ink drawing was created by New Orleans artist Emilie Rhys on October 21, 2016, prior to a live music performance at the historic Dew Drop Dance & Social Hall in Mandeville, LA.

The artist often arrives early and creates a drawing before the music starts, as a way of warming up creatively, and getting a preview of how the stage, or some other aspect of the setting, will fit on the page.

On this occasion, Ms. Rhys was sixteen days out from enduring major surgery, thus it was a triumph to make the journey to the Northshore and to create this drawing, along with several others that night.
