I love this painting; apart from telling a 'story' the technique and style are beautiful! v/f

Jani Freimann replied:

Thank you, Jolante. This painting almost went into my 'sin pile'. It was a quick watercolor sketch that I was, quite frankly, unhappy with at first. The image I had in my head was different than this painting. After putting away for a few weeks, I came across it while rifling through my 'sin pile' looking for paintings to fix. My criticism of it had faded by then and I was able to see it as a decent painting that depicted my encounter with the housekeepers very well. Recently, I dared to enter it into a very prestigious show and to my delight, it got accepted. Now, I eagerly await the shows ruling as to whether or not it will receive an award.

Housekeepers Of Soniat House


Jani Freimann


Painting - Watercolor/pastel


This painting is based on a photograph I took during a trip to New Orleans. The comings and goings of hotel housekeepers.
I was graciously invited to tour a quant, historical hotel by the resident butler, who noticed me peeking through the iron-gated entrance. My view through the gate turned out to be a home that was converted to a very nice hotel called Soniat House. Soniat House is a small historic luxury boutique hotel in the French Quarter of New Orleans.

As I entered the courtyard, I noticed immediately that the temperature was much cooler. Well-established plants and an iron fountain, with trickling water, stood steadfastly in their places. The atmosphere was fantastic and held a historical air. Even though the hotel was superbly captivating, my gaze was drawn to these ladies busily going about their job. I was deeply moved by their gracious contentment with their station. I don't know how to describe it. They were simply beautiful. I also loved how bright white their socks, shoes, and aprons were. I wanted to capture all of this and I think that I did.
