Collage and Painting

These are some paintings I did in a journal a few years back, and a portrait of the Afro Cuban All Stars for the Playboy Jazz Festival.

The piece below came about while developing the background for the Jazz Festival collage. Though the piece above solved the problem of showing the entire group and put them in a setting of old photos on a wall, I like the random, sketchiness of the experiment and the off centered design better than the finish.

The piece with the green flame is the result of shifting colors and altering channels in Photoshop to come up with color variations. I'll post the original of this soon to show how far it got in tone and color.
