This is my new painting of a big band that I painted in support of our Wine Club who is sponsoring
a big band event in June. I shall donate an 18x18" giclee of this painting to the Wine Club. They will sell chances to win it aat the Jun meeting and proceeds go the charity.

The subject reminds me of my mother because she loved and sang this music.  In fact, I still know the words to many of the 40's songs because she sang them around the house so much.  For this painting, I wanted to explore working with the palette knife so it's very different technique for me.
