Piece description from the artist
This is an original jazz oil painting by fine artist Christopher Clark. Bright lights, hot jazz – a wailing trumpet deftly painting a sultry picture of music onto a dark dance floor. This is a portrait of Denver jazz great Joe Smith, who rocks the dance floors on a regular basis with his band the Spicy Pickles.
Christopher Clark specializes in oil paintings of many subjects: romance, dancing, music, Italy, animals, and cityscapes. His impressionist style is compelled by bold brushwork, brilliant colors, and a luminous sense of light.
Christopher Clark has studied art his entire life, ever since he was a boy watching Bob Ross painting shows on TV (that wacky guy with the afro painting "happy little trees"). His art studies and travels have taken him all over the world in pursuit of culture, art knowledge, and painting subjects.
Christopher's favorite subject to paint is light itself, meaning anything becomes a beautiful subject if the light is stunning. Christopher's paintings are collected all over the world, and he is available for commissions of all kinds.
