Azure Melody

18 ¾” x 26 ½”

I was a part of a gallery that had a call for art with a jazz theme. There was to be a party that included a jazz band opening the show.

I wanted to do a simple piece based on this theme. In order to simplify what I usually do, bigger appliqué pieces were used. Since I usually create realistic images this was to be more abstract. Finding an image on the internet, my computer software rendered this image in poster form in unusual colors. You really have to look from a distance to see that this is a bespeckled trombone player. The quilting has some musical notes hidden within.
