Playboy Jazz Festival

The Playboy Jazz Festival goes on today and tomorrow at the Hollywood Bowl. Below is an illustration they commissioned of Jazz pianist Monty Alexander for their program. Every year the program includes a portrait of each performer. I'd love to see all the other art that's in the book. Many thanks to AD Fred Fehlau.

I've always loved painting portraits, especially of friends and family. Here's a recent painting of my good friend Christine; probably my largest watercolor portrait to date. Schmincke and Fw's on 22"x 30" Rives BFK. I've got several more portraits in the works. I also managed to get a good scan of Ping's portrait.
