Duck, Acrylic on Canvas, 24” x 24”
The rusty saxophone peaks out of the blue sky, peering ahead. Just like a goose-neck duck wandering through the reeds, this saxophone bellows a great call. I took photographs of my son’s tenor saxophone and placed it on the edge to look phallic. It is also an example of how I like to blend sexual imagery into musical instruments. This painting was part of the United Nations Year of the Forest Juried Exhibition held at the Burlington Art Centre and was adjudicated by my old professor, Art Green.
