New Orleans Statue/Bust

So, when we were in New Orleans last last summer (that's two summers ago in my speak) we went to the Houmas House Plantation (a stunning place!) and I randomly snapped a picture of a beautiful bust in the interior that as I recall was the image "the first ? of ?" The first governor of Louisiana? The first mayor of New Orleans? I've searched on google using every thought trail I could think of and no luck. Sooo, if any of you know "What, Who, Why" please, please tell me!
Pencil on some annoying paper so I called it quits - We'll just chalk it up to nose/jaw/curl practice (He rather looked like Roger Daltrey, didn't he? At least that is my impression. Quite Handsome.)
Cheers all!


  1. A definite Roger look-a-like!! Its lovely to see you posting and your wit and humour is always uplifting. : )
    I can't help you with the who it was but you did a brilliant job with the drawing!

  2. Love the half finished look. He is quite handsome. Check out "A Day Not Wasted"...he posted his April Challenge - A bust.

  3. Wow gorgeous! (lol about Roger Daltrey and yes, he does :)
    I love that nose!!! Noses are so difficult. Super cool drawing - I can't say enough. Love it!

  4. Thanks you guys! You are all the sweetest! And Margie, i usually follow "A Day Not Wasted" but for some reason I hadn't! Will now!

  5. Wow, this is amazing! I will find out who this is and get back to you. Thanks for sharing it with us and the world!
