“Sublime Jazz”, 40″ x 26″, pigment print and acrylic on canvas, 2013
This painting was created as part of my creativeLIVE Intro to Photo Painting: A Creative Approach Using Corel Painter X3 workshop. My inspiration was a photograph (below) that I took of Gwenda and David dancing to the music of the Danny Brown Trio at Bruno’s Pizzeria Cucina on the Fillmore during the Fillmore Vintage Couture Ball. I love the way that Gwenda and David were lost in their own world as they moved to the sublime jazz… hence the title of the painting. Thanks to the Danny Brown Trio, Gwenda (of ArtAmbassador.net) and Dave for their unwitting inspiration!
