What a great surprise to find this post about gallery artist Jaik Faulk on my Facebook feed this week. I do not know Kyle Glenn, but he sure captured Jaik's spirit perfectly!
Portrait of the Day:
Painter Jaik Faulk in his home studio in Lafayette, LA. Jaik was my ambassador to cajun country for the day. It was great to experience the life and culture of Lafayette. We started off with daiquiri tasting, crawfish and beer in the backyard, then went out for a little cajun music jam sesh and two-stepping. Today he introduced me to my first Louisiana po boy, then took me down to try to catch sight of some alligators in the swamp (no luck this time.)
I met Jaik in Portland, and we spent some time in San Francisco together before he moved back to Lafayette. It was awesome to see his excitement for his hometown and the culture of the area. I can’t wait to get back down there for a longer period of time. Maybe when he gets his residency program off the ground…
