The Humorist- An Art Tribute to Woody Allen

Title: "In the Shadow of Django"
Size: 12" x 12"
Medium: Acrylics on gesso board

Here's a new piece for tonight's Woody Allen tribute show at G1988 in Venice. If you've never seen Sean Penn's performance in this flick, it's worth it just for that. Sean Penn plays a fictional jazz guitarist named Emmit Ray who is the second greatest jazz guitarist, after real life guitarist, Django Reinhardt.

That's the other reason I dig the movie. I love noodling on the guitar, and this movie introduced me to Django's  amazing guitar work. The guy was a ripper. Give it a listen if you get a chance. Also, here's the trailer for the flick if you've never seen it.
