ROCK ALONE. Acrylic and molding paste on canvas. 18x24in. SOLD. This is a painting of me playing an outdoor nighttime festival on a big stage. I remember it as very dark and steamy and used Prussian blue because it feels like a humid dark blue to me. I left to it mysterious and relatable by leaving out details.
THREE AMIGOS. Acrylic on canvas. 18x24in. SOLD. These are 3 of my own guitars.
FRIDAY NIGHT GIG. Watercolor and colored pencil on paper. 11x14in. $154. I hope you can feel the hot lights and energy of a band playing for a Friday night dance crowd here.
PARIS PERFORMER. Watercolor pencil on paper. 11x14in. $150. I took the reference photo for this work of a man playing outside on a bridge in Paris. He is apparently somewhat of an icon around there. My friend Kathy knows of him from when she lived there and has pictures of him.
NEW ORLEANS TRUMPET. Acrylic on canvas paper. 5x7in. $25. My friend Curtis and his wife Valerie saw this guy playing on the street in New Orleans and Curtis sent me a picture as inspiration for my painting. This guy has great slinky angles and a fluid posture. This is hanging on my refrigerator right now.
IDOL. Acrylic and pen on Bristol. 5x7in. $150. This is done from a photo of Donna Mogavero, a singer-songwriter I always admired in Columbus, Ohio. She is a great songwriter and performer and really writes great lyrics. You may notice I included lyric writing underneath the painting.
VICTOR’S BAND. Acrylic on canvas. 16x20in. SOLD. This was a commission I really enjoyed doing. It was a gift for one of the band members, Victor Campos.
OPEN MIC. Acrylic on canvas. 11x14in. $250. This is a local superstar, Kwame Henry Jones, performing at a nice local spot. I loved the lighting here.

SAX. Acrylic on canvas board. 8x10in. SOLD.
FUNKY DAWGZ. Watercolor, colored pencil and pen on paper. 11x14in. $100. I captured this as the band was playing outside at the Sono Arts Festival in Norwalk, CT. These guys have a great energy.
MOUNTAIN MUSIC. Acrylic on Bristol. 11x14in. $75. I did this for a flyer to advertise a music festival in Colorado.
KEEPING TIME. Acrylic on canvas. 11x14in. $320. The inspiration for this one is a picture of a friend of mine, Howard Graber, jamming in his home studio. I tried to capture the mood of his slow groove and block the compartmentalizing that goes on for a musician who has a love for playing music while managing a family and another full time career.
SING YOUR LIFE. Acrylic on canvas. 16x20in. $640. This is a self portrait of me performing. I am trying to show the movement, the feeling, the thoughts that go on throughout the experience of performing. It almost feels like swimming in the ocean, so that’s the blue.
NOTHING LEFT TO LOSE. Acrylic on canvas. 16x20in. $640. Based on a few images of Janis Joplin and my own interpretation. She was electric.
SAX MAN. Acrylic on Bristol. 11x14in. $160. This one is done from a photo I took on my iPhone at an O.A.R. concert. I thought the guy had great lines and presence. He was very saxy.
JAZZ MAN. Oil on canvas board. 9x11in. SOLD. This was a study I did of a man playing on a park bench in Columbus, Ohio. I had intended to finish it with more detail and deeper colors, but people seemed to like it just how it was, so I stopped.
GUITAR MAN. Acrylic on Canvas board. 11x14in. $154. This is an action impression of Bob Feather, a real guitar man in New England. This was based on a calm and tidy black and white photo he shared with me. This is how it feels to me when he is playing. So much power and energy and life.
STRUM. Acrylic on canvas. 14x11in. $300.
THE STORY. Acrylic on canvas paper. 12x16in. $192. Based on a shot of Brandi Carlile. One of the most passionate and colorful songwriters out there.
HER MOMENT. Acrylic and marker on canvas. 11x14in. $308. This one was inspired by a moment at a live performance in Connecticut by a great songwriter, Laura DeLallo. Another one where I use a marker to give a sense of the writing of lyrics and thoughts in the head in the underpainting.
ON STAGE. Acrylic on canvas paper. 5x7in. $25. This was more of a rough sketch in acrylic of the son of my brother’s best friend. I liked the personality and movement here but haven’t created a finished work from it yet. Shout out to Greg & Karen!
HORN SECTION. Acrylic on canvas. 18x24in. $432. This was a very quick and lively painting I did of 2 guys playing at an open jam. I used this fluid style and bold colors to express the energy you feel when playing music in a group at a club in front of people. This is based on Curtis Streuli and Winston Wisehart, local legends in CT.
TRUMPETER. Acrylic and pen on Bristol. 5x7in. $100. This was something I started in my sketchbook while watching a band on tv. I just loved the reflection of the lights on skin and instruments. I don’t even remember now who it was.
ACOUSTIC BLUE. Acrylic on Bristol. 11x14in. $154. This is of a man pursuing his dream and sharing his gift. I used blue to indicate his authenticity. He’s the real deal, Luke Domozick.
