"Look One Hand" 2018 oil on canvas 36" x 36"
Once again my eye was caught by the light on the black wood floor of the house. It appears blue in the late afternoon. I made a pastel sketch so the colors are a bit exaggerated.
The sketch only had the figure at the piano. I felt it needed another so I photographed myself at the table by propping up my phone on a stool and setting the timer.
The figure playing the piano is only using one hand which reminded me of an episode of the Uncle Floyd Show. He played great stride piano and at one point only used one hand to play the melody and said, "Look, One Hand!" The things that stick in your mind.
