Oil Paint
23 x 28 in
A highly realistic rendering of a clarinet (do I have my instrument right?) perched on a vintage leather suitcase, with a battered music book leaning against the wall behind it. Clearly what is being depicted here metaphorically is the life of the veteran traveling musician. Very finely painted, with exquisite detail - a peaceful, moody, evocative painting. Nicely framed.
