The Edge of the Blues

Here you go, a new painting.

I just entered this into a competition.  As you all know I love to paint color. Mostly in bright and happy combinations.  But every now and then I see something in and around my life and I need to paint the mood. Color plays a huge roll in that also.  

This painting has been on my mind for a while.  Brent and I were in Mountain View at our lovely hide-a-way a week or two after his dad had passed away. I came out of the bathroom and he was sitting on the edge of the bed... the rest is the painting.  I got may camera and got a few shots before he noticed.  I loved the way the light was on his hands and the rest faded into the background.  This painting is a bit emotional for me, but I wanted to portray a musician letting  the music soothe his soul.  Enjoy!!
