“Laissez les bons temps rouler!” is a Cajun expression meaning “Let the good times roll!”  It strongly conveys the “joie de vivre” (“joy of living”) attitude that pervades south Louisiana. Of course, it is mostly associated with New Orleans. For, this phrase pops up throughout the Mardi Gras season.  If you didn’t take French in high school, you may struggle to say “laissez les bon temps rouler.”  To our American tongues, this phrase is literally foreign. As for pronunciation, try it phonetically – lay-zEh leh bAwn taw rOO-leh or you can try Lazay Lay Bon Tom Roulay or “Lay-say le bontom roo-lay.

Let the good time roll - Acrylic Abstract by Red, 60"x40", Gallery Wrap Canvas Room View


No matter how you pronounce it, it is a fun expression to use. Did you know that when someone shouts “Laissez les bon temps rouler”,  you should respond with “Oui, cher.” In English, this means “Yeah, you right.”

Creating my artwork is one of my joyous adventures and the bons temps seem to always be present with life in my studio. So this painting with its intricacies of colors, shapes and movement is an expression to roll with life’s good times that may come your way.

So let the good times roll! 

 (…yeah, you right!)
