When painting live, it isn’t uncommon for friends and strangers alike to bring me beers as a show of appreciation for the entertainment provided. It also isn’t uncommon for me to drink them. Combined with a particularly grooving set of live music, this can lead to the complete inability to accurately render a bird, while at the same time creating an undeniable inspiration to paint one. These paintings are what happens at those times.
