Bossa Nova Commission

I just delivered this #bossanova commissioned painting to Yucca Valley. It features some talented friends of mine; Allison Rice, Alán Laureano, Zac Cornejo and Drummer Ari Palusky. Thank you to the wonderful Laura Foxx for adding so much to the performance and Thank you to Jazzy Jean for commissioning this work of art. Sadie Johannsson really knows how to put on a great Bossa Nova party to celebrate the painting.
Did I mention the bass player couldn’t make it down, so I filled in on upright bass?
