Music for Mary, 9x12", oil on linen, 2015. Available

This was painted en plein air at the 2015 Plein Air Convention in Monterrey, CA. Convention artists were painting all around Fisherman’s Wharf. Aimee Erickson, a good friend and talented artist, and I painted this same street musician from different angles. I employed quick express brushwork to capture the moment and rhythm of the scene. Apparently, his guitar case earnings combined with the model fee money Aimee and I gave him amounted to better than his average take. The title of this piece is a tongue-in-cheek reference to what the musician said he would spend his money on. Available
