Sax Sex – I don�t know what compelled me to do this painting, but oddly enough, I finished it 2 days ago on October 6th. That day just happens to be International Saxophone Day. Yes, that�s really a �Day!� It seems Saxophone Day is celebrated on November 6th of each year in remembrance of Antoine-Joseph (Adolphe) Sax, the inventor of the saxophone. Adolphe Sax was born on November 6, 1814 in Dinant in Wallonia, Belgium.
I am a huge jazz fan, and to me, the saxophone is one sexy sounding instrument, be it, soprano, tenor, alto, or baritone. Since Saxophone Day is October 6th, I thought I would list my 6 favorite Saxophone players. They are: Grover Washington Jr. / Julian (Cannonball) Adderley / Stan Getz / Sonny Rollins / John Coltrane / Charlie (Bird) Parker
I know my saxophones aren�t anatomically correct, they�re not meant to be. I leave that to the �realist� painters. My saxophones are too into creating beautiful music together (i.e. sex) to worry about outward appearances.
