This is a Jazz saxophonist lovingly sharing the magic of his craft. I became fascinated during a concert of not only the loving manner with which he played his sax but also the play of light from the stage lighting. Music has always been an inspiration when I paint ,
The basic fact is " I PAINT", everything else doesn't really matter , but it's there if you care to read it. And yes , I did run away to the South Pacific for a few years. I never lost the ability to see the world as a place full of wonder. Decided not to change because 'it was time to grow up'.
