When I examined the photo I had taken, I felt that the color of the moment didn't come through. That's what I wanted to portray, the brightness, the musicality, the frivolity that was so prevalent when we stood there listening to the trio in person. That led me to experiment with Photoshop and Illustrator treatments, and I started feeling the same joy that the trio seemed to feel. I loved the color shift idea, because it made the photo explode with hues and tones that the natural eye doesn't see in the same way. The painting celebrates color, music, joy, presence, humanity, and community.
