trio 20 x 16 lo res

Day 26 takes us back to the Jazz theme. I woke up one morning with the composition of trio in my mind. Complementary colors Blue and orange/gold , with vertical background pieces, and horizontal blue pieces on top. Even the black couched thread on top was clear in my mind. Three jazzy musicians having a ball.

This is day 12 of the 30 Paintings in 30 Days challenge issued by artist Leslie Saeta. Or I guess it should read 28 paintings in 28 days, since it’s February.  But that doesn’t have quite the same ring.

I’ve been working on a series of jazz themed works based on listening to the happy, rollicking rendition of Linus and Lucy, the theme song of Peanuts, the movie, by the Vince Guaraldi Trio.

Day 8 of  #30paintingsin30days.  Or Art Quilts, in my case.

This is a small version of Linus and Lucy Blue.  These 6 x 8″ framed art quilts are popular items in the art fairs I do, as well as gift shops around town.  I’m continuing with the series — listening to Linus and Lucy by the Vince Guaraldi Trio.

I will be submitting work to two art shows to be held in conjunction with the annual Berks Jazz Festival in April. This one is inspired by the happy theme from the Peanuts movie, Linus and Lucy. I was listening to the Vince Guaraldi Trio jazz version at the time.
