De Cafe February 2015 - Perseverance Jazz Band
This month's De Cafe performance at the Perkins Center for the Arts was Perseverance, a New Orleans style jazz band based out of Philadelphia. It was a little bit of Mardi Gras right here in South Jersey. OK, I'll stop place dropping. My point is, the show was fantastic. It was a sold out show, so my view was less than ideal. I was only able to include half the band in this watercolor and ink depiction. Like most of my live band paintings, this piece measures 6 inches by 6 inches. It was painted only while the band played. The goal being to capture the energy and mood of the musicians as they create. I paint the performance, not the performers.
