What would summer be without the bold big sunflower? And how could it be summer without the samba played by Brazilian Eliane Elias?
Eliane Elias (eh-lee-AH-neh eh-LEE-ahs) (born March 19, 1960 in São Paulo, Brazil) is a Brazilian jazz pianist, arranger, vocalist and songwriter. She is one of my favorite jazz pianists. Her mother was a classical pianist who had a huge collection of jazz records. When Eliane was a little girl she grew up listening to jazz music being played in her home.

This abstract print from my original painting seeks to capture the depth of passion in the Tango and the powerful feelings of the blind Frank Slade. I have used army colors and black for Pacino along with yellows, pinks and reds for his dancing partner. The paint is put down with bold strokes to express passion and the movement of the dance.

This is Oscar Peterson's jazz version of "Girl Talk" ... just the right tune for the calmness of blue. Peterson was one of my dad's favorite jazz pianists. I grew up knowing his music very well.

Some intense digital filtering brought a new piece of artwork. Amazing how you can take a still life and turn it into an underwater romance. Philippe Saisse's rendition of "If I Ever Loose Heaven" is one of my favorite tunes. I like it with this print called "Arctic Drifting".
This is a fine art giclée print with intense color and powerful imagery. You can see it on: http://www.etsy.com/shop/MoxyFoxDesigns?section_id=5511113

Taken from my original acrylic painting, this giclée print — pronounced “ghee-KLAY” — fits an 11 x 14 inch frame when matted. The inspiration for this portrait came from the jazz classic entitled "Tangerine". The music was written by Victor Schertzinger, the lyrics by Johnny Mercer. The song was published in 1941.
