My Future's Past 4

Another music themed post, with another early journey expressing late nights filled with emotionally charged music performed by close friends. 
This one means alot to me. I have shared it before . 

Early on, I began to focus on the importance of gesture in hands.  I made them larger and more important than they seem to be in nature or photography. I distort them into unattractive unnatural shapes that express emotion and drive the narrative..  For guitarists, its all in the fingers, the music lives through touch..

These early musician paintings developed a vocabulary of shapes that would evolve and propel my current work.

With continuing gratitude to Pedro, Little J., Bash, Dupester, and Gabs.
