Each of my paintings is unique. When painting musicians, my main concern is to convey a sense of the music. I sketched Charles Burrell in Denver in 1975 when he was performing with the Denver Symphony Orchestra. He is one of the first African American musicians in a major national orchestra. He is still playing jazz in Denver clubs.
