The Bass Player
I loved painting this from a black and white photo. Distilling the image and creating the colors brings a different kind of joy than what I feel when attempting to paint something exactly as I see it in a photo. It feels more like I "created" something new and that I am recreating myself as well. When life's many ups and downs challenge me, I take refuge in the process of painting. Memories of my daughter playing this bass accompanied me on this artistic journey. I would appreciate your thoughts and comments.
