ARTWORKS > Contemporary Rituals

Part of the "Contemporary Rituals" series. Based on photographs of people hanging out: dancing, chatting, smoking, while immersed in the sounds of the Blues during Chicago Blues Festival. Figures vary from more figurative to more abstract. The painting has multiple focal points, with a few things "going on" at the periphery.
