The Violinist, 5x7 Original Oil on Canvas by Carmen Beecher

I painted this from a bad cell phone photo shot in a dark cafe. I then Photoshopped it until I could make out the musician enough to paint him. He was with the San Miguel Five, a band that is famous in San Miguel de Allende, and for good reason. They played haunting Argentine music that was at times so sad that it made someone cry (I won't say who). I love night scenes, and I love to paint musicians and feel the music all over again.
