Gary Harrell - Gary Harrell Playing the Blues

In this work the artist depicts himself lost in the music of his harmonica. Gary finds his peace and expresses his spirit through the music of the blues. Gary created a lithograph and then used the artistic technique of pointillism which took dozens of hours meticulously painting small dots of pigment to create a field of color. Music swirls from his hands and the sun shines its inspiration into his head and onto his back.
