This painting was done from a photo I had taken in Honolulu during my painting trip there in 2008. The violinist had made camp in a concrete pavilion, playing beautiful music whilst oblivious tourists passed by him. I was caught up in the magic his music emitted to the warmth and fun of the Waikiki beach scene. Everyone has a story and I wondered how he and his violin happen to land here.
These little "slice of life" scenes have always been part of my painting repertoire and I enjoy revisiting them from time to time.
