If you could SEE Jazz music, what would it look like? Well... here's how I see it. Cool musicians in cool colors, but playing hot jazz music. I enjoyed listening to a nice Jazz Compilation playlist on YouTube while creating this piece. The size is 24 x 30 x 1.5 in. Heavily textured Acrylic on gallery-wrapped canvas with a high-gloss varnish finish. The painting continues onto the sides and is mounted in a natural tone maple floater frame.
Oh! Now I see it! -- my favorite reaction of viewers of my art. Using a combination of painting and drawing techniques, I brush, spatter, splash, scrape, and scribble a plain white canvas into a symphony of color. With my hyper-expressive techniques, I try to put you in touch with the energy within my subjects, which could be a musician filling the air with a melody or a herd of wild mustangs thundering down a hillside. Many of my clients have noticed that my personal style has evolved from a loose realism into what resembles a combination of the techniques of my two favorite artists, one from post-impressionism and the other from abstract expressionism. I like to call the style, Vincent van Pollock. I am a native Texan and live in the Dallas area. My formal art training took place in Austin, Texas where I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Texas. Other interests of mine are playing and singing Bluegrass music, and songwriting.
