Wow, what intense weather for the Midwest! Again the road to Indiana is closed, for me that is another afternoon in the studio. The short trip to the studio yesterday was clear, the below 0 temperature was the reason for school closures here in Illinois. I really enjoyed making this piece, the horn is a very special one with 4 keys instead of 3. The brass tubing formation is very different than other 2 painting of horns that I have tackled. Day one was just laying in the golden background. When I have a plan things can go pretty fast.
