“...He’s a Player”
‘Blues’ Juried Art Show Toucan Gallery
August 2 Artwalk During the Blues Festival
The player? Well, that silver tongue dandy is the red wing blackbird often spotted on Montana Avenue. He’s been seen chasing the sweet, blue tipped moon moths dancing on the right-top corner. Big sky starlight is mimicked with glass beads. Player piano roll paper (LaPaloma, the Dove) is collaged atop vintage Montana geological maps. The bottom right hand white square holds movement marks of the Meadowlark’s song. Classical music of Beethoven is affixed throughout the painting. 36“ x 24“ x 2.5“
As a working artist/retired art educator, I've always lived the artful life. Let's share!
