Charlie Parker

I created this oil on canvas painting in 1988,which is based on a black and white photo I saw in a book about Charlie Parker. This painting was done for my niece when she asked if I could do a painting or drawing of Charlie Parker that she could give to a friend. I decided to do an oil painting to use as a portfolio sample and than made a print for her to give to her friend. This has never been used for commercial reproduction. The painting size is 16″ wide by 20″ high.

I will be displaying this painting during an Art,Music and Worship event at Webster Groves Christian Church on MLK day . The event will take place from 5:30 until 8:00 on Jan.16,2012.
