And.. We're Back!

So, it has been a while since my last post. Luckily, I have a pretty good reason as to why! As many of you already know... We are havin' a baby! (wow, still crazy to hear/read myself say/type that). Over the last few months, the nausea has kept me pretty far from my easel and quite near my bed. Thankfully these last couple weeks have turned around and I'm finally feeling like myself again. So, with my brother-in-law's birthday coming up, I got back to work!

A couple of years ago, I painted something similar for my in-laws as their Christmas gift. Since then, I've had a few requests for more New Orleans style jazz pieces (i.e. the painting from my last blog post!) So, with my brother-in-law being one of those requests, I had to make up excuses and come up with reasons as to why I hadn't started on his painting yet - that is, until his birthday finally came around!

The cityscape was done with knives and the sky and musicians  were mainly with my brushes. Coming up with some new instruments to throw in there was fun, and of course, I'm a sucker for the color. Hope you guys love it!
