Phoenix The Moody Artist Tribute Painting to Jazz Great Dave Brubeck-Jazzy Flowers

My Visual Art Inspired by Dave Brubeck, Jazz Legend

Jazzy Flowers is a Tribute to Jazz great, Dave Brubeck.  Take Five and Time Out are synonymous with Dave Brubeck a Jazz Artist.  Many of my paintings have been inspired and colored by his music.  Before I even pick up a brush I set the mood; I load my CD player with Jazz of many great musicians.  Most often at least one of Brubeck’s discs are in to start me off.

Now he has passed on, today, December 5, 2012 in the morning.  This will make my canvas feel a little empty as I give space in his remembrance of someone who inspired me as a visual artist. Rest in peace Dave, you have given and shared your gift to the world with great generosity, color, sound and love.  We, who are so familiar with your unique and masterful magic of music as a pianist and composer are blessed.

One painting in particular comes to mind, it’s my expression in response to his continual complex and inspiring work (Brubeck) is my ‘Jazzy Flowers’.  All I listened to before and during brush strokes hitting the canvas was Brubeck.  I named the painting in honor of his music years before his passing today.  Now the original has long since been placed in a Private Collection, but I do still offer Metal Prints of the same painting.

I hope any of you reading this will find the music and musician(s) that inspire you in some creative form of expression for your own uniqueness.  You may even be the Artist of your form that inspires another to start something simple or profound.  Never underestimate the power of the connection people make with what you share of yourself and craft.

Thank you Dave Brubeck for sharing your heart and soul through your music.  Blessings to his family and friends.  He is already greatly missed, and yet I will celebrate his life and paint even more to the sounds of Brubeck.
