here are some photos of the work in process. the bottom photo is the beginning, the top where I am right now. I think it is going to go through a lot more changes before it is done... I will have to wait and see.

yet still more sketches from musical venues. I have a backlog of images... several paintings in progress which I will be showing soon. These are from songriter night a couple of weeks ago featuring Don Dixon and others. He is the guitar player in the striped shirt. Most of the others are people in the crowd.

sketches from Fur Peace Ranch, 4/4/09
Tony Rice and band members
It was very different to draw these bluegrass type players. They are very still on stage, don't move there arms much at all most of the movement is just in their hands. It was much easier to draw since there was so little movement, compared to other players I have studied. I have some earlier Tony Rice drawings I will have to search for from a concert with Peter Rowan from a couple of years ago.
Wonderful concert also, such masterful players. The drawing labeled Miles Davis was from a tribute that Tony Rice was playing.
