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.
acrylic on canvas 16 x 20.
