Remember Cajun pen-and-ink artist Floyd Sonnier?
In addition to his famous rural south Louisiana scenes, he drew lots of memorable Christmas-themed art for Christmas cards and calendars. For these creations, he worked in his studio in Scott, La., routinely listening to the tune of "The Little Drummer Boy." When it came to the part of the song that says, "I played my drum for Him, Pa rum pum pum pum," Floyd would sing, "I draw my art for Him...."
Floyd's art revealed the heart and soul of a man who understood the true meaning of Christmas and who basked in the spirit of the season. His work was compiled in a book titled "Christmas in Cajun Country," available at www.acadianhouse.com/south-louisiana-regional. The book is bilingual, in English and French, of course--reflecting Floyd's deep pride in his French-Acadian culture and heritage.
