Statement

I was walking home one day and I saw this cool looking yellow window frame and brought it home not knowing what I would do with it with the glass on it and everything. I made my self portrait some time later on canvas board with acrylics and I placed the painting inside the old window frame and it just looked right. The female figure to me represents the muse which in this case it could be nature, then my arms painting and playing the guitar at the same time represent the influence art and music have on each other.

The marriage between art and music is very real. to me I paint mostly to classic Jazz and it seems to free my mind and lets it loose and allows the painting to take command while I simply follow. Most of my work is improvised and most times I do not have a plan to follow. Music has allowed me to tap into a different universe on canvas.
