Living in New Orleans, I am surrounded by live, local, authentic, vibrant, rhythmic, rooted music. I feel blessed to be called to paint the music and musicians that bring us joy and Spirit.

Jazz for ALLAH (Shannon Powell Band)

Jazz for ALLAH

30" x 30" x .75 inches unframed

oil on canvas, 2016 ....

I am truly blessed, grateful, and humble to have been a vessel of the Most High who created this painting. All glory to God, the merciful and benevolent. At the center of this spiritual musical painting is Gye Nyame, the central Ghanian spiritual symbol meaning the supremacy of God. This is the Shannon Powell Band, the painting was inspired by their high energy performance closing out French Quarter Fest 2016 at the Jackson Square stage In the sky is a revelation of the Adinkra symbol of a star, NSOROMMA meaning "child of the heavens", and the guardianship of The Most High. This African star is with the crescent moon. On the right side of the painting OSRAM NE NSOROMMA, the moon and star, a symbol of harmony, and faithfulness. The beauty of this painting is really feeling that all the musicians are playing for ALLAH, with deep devotion and in such a Spirit. Thanks and Praises to JAH, Rastafari
