Years ago I painted mostly men, since my theme for 12 years was jazz musicians. Most of the subjects were men that I met because of my late husband, Kai Winding, who was a part of "The Giants of Jazz". I went with him to recording sessions, jazz clubs and jazz festivals.` I always carried my sketch pad. Every summer for years, I exhibited my paintings of the jazz greats at the Nice, France jazz festival.
I am fascinated with all faces and that is why I am working on this project. I also want to get over my seeming indecisivness with the women's faces.
I went back to a previous published portrait of a lovely woman and reworked it to loosen it.
I am more satisfied with it now.
