One Night after work I was on my way home from work and ran into a Mardi Gras marching band. They ended up stopping at the bus stop on the side of the Boom Boom room on Filmore. It was an amazing unexpected gift. I danced, I laughed and took some great pictures that night. The horn man is one of those talented musicians that played that night. Somehow I wish he could get the credit but at the same time he represents the millions of talented musicians who just do their thing. I think he might be my favorite painting representing all the unknown hero of talent and creativity.
I painted this painting probably in a day. It just flew out of me. And for that and the many musicians this sax player represents, I am going to give $600.00 of the price of this painting to some music Mardi Gras organization that sponsors kids. Schedule a Zoom Meeting, meet the artist, see the details of this painting, work out discounts and help decide on the right non profit for the $600.00.
Now that’s what I call Mardi Gras! Celebrating art, music and people!
