Another example of a painting that I am glad I did not give up on. This one I have shown you before. I think then I explained how I used to play in a band playing saxophone. When I remember those days I see them as joyful and full of colour. Truth to be told I am not sure that his how it was but time makes it seem that way.
This painting was done in pastels after listening to some marvellous jazz playing on the saxophone. An instrument with a beautiful tone and sound and the ability to express mood like few other instruments.
I have had this painting hanging for some time and was about to give up on it and remove it. I had decided to do so on my return from holiday. Surprise surprise when I heard it had sold during my time away. One of three that I sold in my absence. Yesterdays this one and another I will share with you later as I say goodbye to them.
I used this today because I am sure if Andy could have played the sax he would have played a marvellous fanfare as he and the other blind lad reached the other side of that busy road.
