"A Project in Balance"

A painting from my Cubist period - 1960, I think.

I am listening to Charlie Parker right now and I feel the connection to the Painting. I was also listening to Parker at the time I painted it.
There is a simplicity of form and a purity of tone in Parkers play that is at the same time complex in the detail. In Cubism as well. And the two artforms were concieved at about the same time.

I did a copy of a small painting of the French original Cubist Georges Braque instead of buying the actual painting. I shall post that tomorrow!
