I really loved doing the musician painting on Day 46, so I revisited some of those old French Quarter photos from years ago. I’ve started a few others, but this one feels the most complete. The 6x6s are becoming increasingly more challenging. I don’t seem to have the room to play around with the smears and smudges. I’m still using the same size palette knives that I use on my larger pieces. Perhaps it’s time to visit the art store.

I think what I love most about these musicians is that they’re making a living with their art, and, I suppose I can relate 🙂
