I usually sit at the corner table next to the keyboard player when I paint on Monday nights at The Grisly Pear.

Arne Englund on Keyboard

I get a great profile view of the keyboard player.  Last night pen and brush worked well together to depict characteristics of the musicians.

I never know what sort of night it will be.  Some nights are better than others.  Last night was a good night.  The most important thing is to show up.  Even if I have a bad night painting, the music is great for my soul.
