This is one of a series of eight musicians I painted in a two week period during the summer of 2008.
I incorporated the background color theme and stick figurations of this musician series with the intricate fingering mechanism style found in my ‘Flute’.
The background colors 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.
