And All That Jazz
I spent 12 years drawing and painting just jazz musicians. I traveled with my husband and often was give press passes to go back stage or as in the Nice, France jazz festival to go anywhere as long as I did not block the audience from the performers. I worked live and sketched fast. I don't think I could do that now, I'd have to practice for some time. I drew in ink and then back in the studio , I transformed the best of them into paintings. I stopped that long series a few of years after my husband died; however I returned a couple of years ago just to make several encaustic on paper paintings.
