Bluesman - portrait of a harmonica musician

17 x 25
Oil on Canvas


I have a very musical family.  When we get together there is usually a lot of singing and playing of instruments.  At our last family reunion my brother, Richard, showed off his newly learned harmonica skills while my other brother, Dan, snapped some photos. I love the darkness in this piece that leads to the glow around Richard's white beard.  

The photo was used with permission from Dan, who is a professional photographer.  


  1. Wow….you are so lucky to have such talent in the family. Your brother, the photographer, gave you an excellent photo from which to work and you created a masterpiece. This is wonderful!

  2. EXCELLENT piece, Maria. I love the dark background...brings everything else forward...nice work.!!!
