This is the final painting in the series of eight musicians I painted in a two week period during the summer of 2008.

Including a singer in the band adds a huge repertoire of material for the ensemble to perform. When that singer is a Diva, things get really interesting.

The background colors for this entire series are inspired by Henri Matisse.

When hung together, this group of musician figures has the life force of a band in performance.  The series hung in a Toronto theatre, for several years.
