Music in the Air

Finished! I'm submitting this today for a show called "Art of Jazz" sponsored by the Berks Arts Council at the Goggleworks in Reading, PA - wish me luck!

Just for fun: the sheet music in her hair is called "Caravan" by Duke Ellington

Working on a new piece - Also, Face 22 of Day 22

I'm working on this piece for a show called the Art of Jazz - Drop off is next Monday so i hope to have it done in time and hope it gets in! The "music" that makes her hair is jazz sheet music by Duke Ellington called Caravan. It's collage and acrylic - something new for me...

(yes that is my messy studio in the background!)
