    'Mandolin', oil on panel, 24x20.  At a local gathering this gentleman was part of a foursome playing traditional music.  His was the mandolin.  All four were of a certain age and had obviously played together at many venues over the years.  Years of experience make it all seem so easy!

    This painter loves to paint!
    The drippy brush strokes shows the fun and playfulness of juicy painting.
    There are great little spots of detailed color, but it is more of what the artist did not put in that grabbed me.
    Great job!
