coltrane undone

coltrane undone

Today we attended the holiday art fair in Madison and I had no intention of spending any money, yet I managed to. This painting caught my eye and it was the artist's first show, so his work is still relatively inexpensive. We've managed to acquire a couple original pieces by local artists over the years. They were purchased when they were just starting out, so we've seen their work become a bit more sought after. Not that these "investments" will gain us anything since we buy them because we enjoy having them. Our kids may discover we made a wise decisions when they're selling all our stuff at auction 50 years from now.

It was inexpensive because he didn't finish the bottom.

Hey. This is somethin'. Seeing my painting in someone else's place. And Greg- Coltrane's life was unfinished, dig? Thanks again for the purchase... and I hope this is a wise investment for your kids in 50 years.

and don't mind greg, he's a wise-ass.

Hey, how are you? I just want to let you know that I got a big break, I will be displaying my work at The American Jazz Museum in Kansas City this summer. Just trying to reinforce your investment! haha

I have new work at allaboutjazz.com as well as myspace...

this blog is my "live" photo album of sorts. occasionally, i'll throw in some art i've done or some work of my husband's as he's an artist as well. we have a nice yard in a quiet neighborhood with two pugs and a cat, all black. which most of my photos will attest too. ;) i'd love to hear from you, but happy for you to just browse. hope you find something to make you smile. b.
