Jazz Life 'Live'

Each of these pieces is my own form of 'plein air', 'prima facie', or 'in situ,' meaning not from a photo or a memory, but observing subjects directly in their original place. It's a joy for me to listen to great music, and draw moving, gesticulating, active musicians as they make music. Have you noticed that they never stop moving?!! I also keep an eye on the audiences, a major part of the 'live' jazz scene. (Click on large image below for title & media description.)

Graphite ((12"x18") I started this drawing during a performance at Dizzy's in NYC and when I finished it on a jazz cruise several months later, Phil graciously signed it.
