Artist Patrick Henry says that this painting “speaks volumes of a certain place and time”. This painting of a glowing summer evening shows three gentleman “jammin’”. The warmth in the painting makes it appear that Patrick knows the musicians well, but he says that this painting was actually compiled from several still frames from a video posted by a friend on social media. The relationship that is felt by the viewer in the intimacy of this painting is Patrick’s connection to the music itself. In the 60’s and 70’s, Patrick attended live band jam sessions at small venues or homes that had a different feeling from today’s often mass marketed concerts. The painting conveys a joy that these older friends have formed a close, life-long bond that they still celebrate together through music.
