Jazz Trio

12"x16" Oil on Deep-Edged Canvas
with Palette Knife

"Jazz Trio" is the next post in my music series. A jazz trio is a group of three jazz musicians, often a piano trio comprising a pianist, a double bass player and a drummer. It amazes me how such a small group can generate such a rich and complex sound. There is so much texture and interweaving of music. I tried to convey those textures in the painting. Some are soft, others are more defined. The oranges and reds represent the bass. The blacks and whites represent the piano. The white also doubles with the yellow for the drums. All of the other colors represent the magic of jazz.

There are more music inspired abstract compositions to come. Stay tuned.

The series will be on display and for sale during 
The Frankin Art Scene
