I was delighted when Philippe Debongnie invited me to submit an artwork for his project, Jazz and Draw. Each participating artist selects a jazz song and then creates an original, visual interpretation which are featured at his website. My contribution is the painting, “Vessel”. It is in response to “Body and Soul” sung by Billie Holiday.
