He may have played gigs on stage for big bucks. Now he sings on a corner with a tip box at his feet.
But, you can be sure, each song still comes straight from the heart.

  1. Really nice painting. Haven't been on your blog in awhile. It looks great.

  2. C'est une peinture vraiment belle... Elle a une âme, celle de ce musicien.
    Il y met tout son coeur tout comme vous mon cher Dean, vous y avez mis tout votre ressenti. A se demander, si ce musicien ne devient pas tout simplement vous!...
    Une très belle harmonie de couleurs...
    Gros bisous

    Martine quote:"To wonder, if this musician does not become quite simply you!"

    Very perceptive of you, Martine! As a matter of fact, after this was painted, I DID feel it represented me, quite unintentionally! I was a musician...and I no longer play on a stage. But the difference is...I don't play on a corner for tips...

  11. Thank you, Sherry, Lokelani, and Angela!

  12. Hi, Hilda, Barbara, and Celeste...Thank you all for your kind comments.

  13. I know I commented once but that orange background is stunning.
