Sublime Jazz

“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 and Dave for their unwitting inspiration!

    Jeremy did such a wonderful job of creating this painting. I remember the moment he envisioned it when Dave and I were dancing at the club. He took the picture and was so excited about what he saw and was going to turn into a painting. He really captured the sense of time and place and the mood and feeling of being there. It is a joy to see the finished artwork!
