Ebony Drummer, Fluid Acrylics on Paper, 11" x 15", 2015
These jazz ensembles have been reduced to geometric shaped figures revealing the basic instrument highlighted with color.
There is something about watching watercolors flow once they hit the water on paper. When enough water is added to fluid acrylics the flow is similar to watercolors.
This series of jazz pieces are unique alone but more dramatic as a triptych; as a set of three; Trio, Lady Makes Three and Drummer. Each set of three are a small jazz ensemble with one color and the musical staff flowing through each complimenting the group.
