Mo Better Blues

I had some left over paint and time on my hands - not to mention the rainy weather which was perfect for staying inside with some music. I scrambled around and found this reference. It's been in my "to do" pile for a long time. I loved his blue guitar!

Shemikia Sings the Blues

Just needed to listen to some music and paint today. Too much tragedy in the news lately. I hardly even noticed the rain...just zoned out in my own little world. I had a difficult time photographing this one - some small details get lost.

Greg lives in my building and is such a warm, charming man. Late one evening I met him in the lobby where he was leaning on the desk talking to the concierge. I snapped a photo on my cell phone and forgot about it. While cleaning out all the excess stuff stored on my phone I ran across it again. He always has such a charming smile so with free time on my hands I did this little study.
