"Louisiana" was designated the official painting for the state of Louisiana in 1995. The original painting hangs at the State Capitol, and a copy is displayed at the Governor's mansion. This painting was a 10 year collaborative effort between a father and son team of artists (Johnny O. Bell and Johnny F. Bell). "Louisiana" contains a representation for all official symbols and commonly accepted icons of Louisiana, and the painting is dominated by the state colors of gold, white and blue.
