This is one of a series of eight musicians that I painted in a two week period during the summer of 2008.
‘Slap That Bass’ is the only of one of the series that does not employ Matisse inspired background colors. The title of this painting is derived from a George Gershwin composition.
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.
