This is another in a series of paintings based on pen and ink drawings done at the Palau de la Musica. There are normally tuba and contrabass sections of these symphonic bands.
I always carry a small notebook with me. If I am sitting around and see something or someone interesting, I give it a go. Here are some recent ones.
These miniatures are just $50 each. Prints too.
Go, Figures started life as a regular modeling session but in acrylics, not the usual way to go. It evolved into this. The background is inspired by František Kupka’s Mme Kupka (1910). He was a Czech artist and she his wife. I saw the painting at the Nieu Gallery in NYC, at a special exhibit that included some of Klimt’s famous paintings.

The paintings and drawings in this video slide show were done at Palau de la Musica, Valencia. They explore the state of mind we experience as music transports us to a semi dream-like state.

The music is Arco de Noe by Oscar Navarro, a Valencian composer. He was in the audience the day we heard this piece.

Two Brown Bass Fiddles at the Palau
This started life as a drawing at Palau de la Musica. I enlarged the original, a tiny 2 x 4″ and put it on the canvas board, then painted in with acrylics. See also Two Fiddles at the Palau, a version of this based on the very same drawing.
Self Portrait of My Own Self With Shaved Head
I shaved my head because I had so little hair left anyway. It was nonetheless a shock to see myself in the mirror, looking so unlike me. No one else seems to think so.
Portrait of Worry
This is just a totally made up portrait. Pen lines, acrylic paints and washes make up the painting.

Continuing with the Picassoesque themes, here two women embrace before a blue sky, under a pale moon.
