2003 Illustration Graphite Pencils on lt. wt. drawing paper with tooth. 14×11″

Clifford Brown one of my all time favorite Jazz trumpet players. This illustration was the study for the 60×48″ Oil on canvas painting…..Brownie

I play his music some times when I work on bright colorful passionate…….pieces with lots of energry and movement as it helps to get the flow and rhythm of the work to come out just right.

As a self-taught working artist, I have always believed that we are all blessed with gifts. It’s up to us to recognize and develop them; to what extent we will use those gifts to benefit others that cross our path.

    Wow Rey what a passionate, sensitive drawing. I can see and feel the music and his complete absorption in playing this Jazz. Great to know what you listen to when you paint energetic work with high movement. Great expressive drawing dear Rey. xxx
