Playin' the Blues - Acrylic impressionistic representational figure of saxophone player by Pennsylvania Daily Painter Pat Koscienski

" Playin' the Blues"
20" x 16"
Acrylic on deep cradled clayboard


This painting was done from a photo posted by Lee A. Brown on his challenge blogspot A Day Not Wasted. It was not a recent photo, but I was intrigued by this sax player and inspired to paint him.

You did an awesome job here, Pat. I love the highlights on his cheeks! I always am envious of musical talent and this man must have it in abundance!

Pat Koscienski said...

Thanks, Sherry. I, too, have no musical talent; maybe that's why he intrigued me so much.

Wow Pat! This one blows me away (no pun intended)! A show winner for sure - hope you enter this one somewhere! Fabulous!

Thanks, Rosemary. I would like to enter it in the Harrisburg Art Association's Figuratively Speaking Exhibit. Hope your intuition is right. Have a Merry Christmas to you and yours.

So much character in his face - the energy of this composition means that I can almost hear the blues as I look at it!

Thanks, Cheoy Lee & Hilda, I'm so glad that is what captured your attention. I was so afraid that viewers would start counting the keys and buttons on the saxophone....
