Bob’s Tuesday Black American Portrait

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art published a new book: Black American Portraits. I seem to have missed the publication deadline as none of my portraits appear to be in the book.

So to keep you up to date I will be publishing an African American portrait every Tuesday. See you on Tuesdays!

Firefari Carrol Oct 26, 2021: Today we lost a legend. A man we will remember always. My father, Jeffrey Carrol left us to hang with Bob in the great after. I only have one request – can we all play Bob Marley today and fill the world with songs of freedom. Hope dad and mom are smoking the biggest splif ever. – Facebook post

Art and Music After 80 Part 2

Homage to the Past, Hope & Inspiration for the Future

Black Women are inspiring their peers and other generations to break the stereotypes that are often associated with aging. The idea for this work comes from a Chicago Black women’s band The KCR Ensemble, led by 75 year old guitarist Rita Hassell and managed by her husband Oliver Hassell.

Here they are:

The art is not portraits of the KCR Ensemble members, but follows the pattern of and pays homage to these women who are playing the classics, the music from the diaspora, contemporary and futuristic jazz.

The images pay homage to art that has gone before, art media, and cutting edge art of today.

Now the work is available in our concert halls and internet venues.
