The featured artist this month is Randy La Prarie. He is a taxidermist and painter from Bayou Pigeon.
When he was 14 years old he was loaned $12 to take a taxidermy class by his father. And, back then $12 was a good bit of money. At the time, his father told him it was over his better judgement.
Mr. La Prarie has been painting for most of his life. The main focus of his artwork is our state’s great wildlife.
