Perfect Pitch

20 x 8"  | oil on panel

I went to a rehearsal several years ago to sketch ideas for paintings. I found many. This person was a joy to watch. I loved the way she moved. Going through images in sketchbooks and reference photos recently, I came across those rehearsal notes and rediscovered one of my favorite moments . . . I have finally painted it.

Washin' the Blues Away

12 x 16  |  oil on panel

My intention for this painting: to create the feeling of joyful music-making—a delightful evening in May with family. When many of us get together, music often follows a great dinner and conversations with lots of laughter.
