Music Speaks

Music Speaks, private commission, acrylic on board, 14x11", 2010
A good acquaintance of mine contacted me a few weeks ago and asked if I could put this painting together for her. It was a surprise for a friend of hers and thoughtful indeed. I was supplied the photo images that she had in mind. I always like to make adjustments to photo references when possible so that the final painting is a one-of-a-kind; not found in any existing photos. I suggested adding text somewhere in the painting and my good friend came up with the text which is now part of this painting. I thought is was a great piece - there is a really nice jazz vibe throughout the entire composition. Hope you enjoy - Jared
