Band at El Carmen

Band at El Carmen, acrylics, 8.25 x 16.6, 30 x 40 cm

Band at El Carmen, 12th century monastery in Valencia. They performed during an event I attended. These monasteries were once brightly painted, but not like this!  I have the freedom to decorate the Gothic arches as I please, and I like them bouncing off the page.

Singer, Drummer, Sax, Clarinets, Singers

From my music series, Singer Sax Drummer is based on a drawing done at  the Palau de la Musica in Valencia.   I have included the drawing below.  It is done in acrylics.  There are two distinct planes.  You see two instrument playing muses, one kicking her leg up.   This painting is a fusion of automatic drawing and an abstract background with bright and strong colors.
