Beyond the Wine Aisle

Le Jazz Hot III, watercolor, framed, 42 x 36


Maritza often refers to her playfulness and spirit of adventure, and you can experience that in every one of her outstanding Jazz series paintings. Working with watercolor pigments diluted with vodka, she uses gold leaf to accentuate the design.

This painting is the last of several from her Le Jazz Hot series. Maritza explains that she saved it for last because it is her favorite. I wish my photograph could convey the richness of the colors against the stunning glitz of the gold leaf.

Look at the detail in "Le Jazz Hot III" - have you ever sat in a smoky club and heard the music in your head long after the musicians have stopped playing? The shadows in the background of this painting are the visual equivalent of that ghost of the music. Can you hear it?

Prints available. Please inquire.
