This art blog is devoted largely to my creative passion and endlessly challenging endeavor of portraying musicians as they perform.  What I relish about this method of work, and what differs so drastically from other forms of portraiture, is the synesthetic aspect.  The visual capture of the motion of the subjects and their objects also incorporates impressions of the music as it is created.  Thus, sounds and kinetics are assimilated and converted into color and form.   When possible, an autograph is obtained, representing the final participation of the performer.  It is the only portion of the graphic involving both permission and the hand of another, frequently embellished with date stamping, commentary, or various flourishes.   All the more for me to play with, making a game of imagined morsels of insight linking autograph qualities to technical and emotional facets of the performance.
