20 Feb Throwback Thursday
Early Works. Collection of works from the 1990s, including my favorite pastel piece of Dizzy Gillespie.
Gillespie’s trademark trumpet featured a bell which bent upward at a 45-degree angle rather than pointing straight ahead as in the conventional design. As a tribute to the man’s passing, I did a chalk pastel work featuring his famous cheeks and trumpet back in January 1993.
Bob Marley (1995)
The first CDs I ever owned were a 4-CD boxed set of Bob Marley songs. It covered his work from the first 45 Bob recorded to the last live version of one of my favorites of his.
