Threshold, 2014. Ink and digital color, 8x10”.
I actually had a phase a few years ago where the only thing I painted was interiors, so with this assignment I was fighting a bit to keep from repeating myself. The result here is kind of a creepy vintage illustration.
A thing for QDC.
Coltrane, 2014. Ink, collage and digital color.
My first QDC post of the year is a portrait of John Coltrane for our group’s contribution to Jazz and Draw. If you aren’t familiar with Coltrane’s legendary work as a saxophonist and band leader, Coltrane Plays the Blues is a great place to start.
Coltrane was a great musical figure to explore in this piece. I’m looking forward to seeing the other portraits from the rest of the QDC.
Happy Birthday to an all around excellent babe, Vickie Verhagen! See you in New York!
