OK, it's getting lighter every day here in Hökarängen but it's easy to dream about the Greek light.
Here a new watercolor/collage painting, with some mailart pieces added, artistamps and a rubberstamp donkey imprint.

Thinking about Hydra and Greece - here's the painting "Taverna Yamas".
Can you see how keen the guys are on having a toast and their first glass of cold Retsina?

Follow me, I plan a trip to The Abstract Land, leaving the jazz for a while.

Here's the first one, "Abstract #1, 2019". It's watercolor, pen & ink and it's 38 x 28cm (15 x 11").

Like most of my stuff it's for sale and just email or message me if you are interested.

Sal Nistico

Jan 5, 2019

A sketchy portrait of Sal Nistico. This one´s for Johnny Brewton.
I'd heard Sal Nistico's name but I didn´t know much about this guy when Johnny mentioned him. He played mostly tenor sax and was with Woody Herman in the sixties. But he was more of a bebop man on his own albums later. He also played together with Nick Brignola, the bariton saxophone guy.
