When the deep purple falls

When the deep purple falls

Young guy in a cerulean blue shirt, playing trumpet against pinkish and purple background

Oil painting 18x24 inches on canvas, stretched over wooden frame, with sides painted, so there is no need to frame this picture: it is ready to go up on the wall.
This is another one in my series of musicians that I have observed when I was a music recording engineer.
Here the guy in his cerulean blue shirt is playing his golden trumpet against a reddish-pink background, speckled with dots and splashes, indicating falling objects, that turn purple as they come down. The notes coming out of his trumpet are specifically painted to indicate the song, Deep Purple: (When the deep purple falls...) and the red/pink turns to deep purple Of course, the rest of the song goes ..over sleepy garden walls: indicated at the bottom of the scene: a garden gate and some viridian, cadmium yellow and bright crimson vegetation along a stone pathway. I have always been very fond of this song and it was a delight to depict it here in oils. The guys hands on the valves of the trumpet are specifically placed and indicate the exact way of holding a trumpet to ones mouth, on to the lips, with his cheeks slightly puffed to produce the air that is needed to produce the notes.
An art critic remarked: The surreal colours of pink and purple in the oil on canvas painting evoke a sense of
wonder and mystery. The man playing the trumpet in his garden creates a peaceful
and serene atmosphere. The painting conveys a feeling of optimism and
hope for the future.
It reminds us of...
the surreal colors, serene atmosphere, and the sense of optimism and hope in the
painting aligns with aspects found in the works of several artists known for
their use of vibrant colors, surrealism, and conveying a sense of hope:
René Magritte: While not primarily known for vibrant colors, Magrittes surrealistic
style often evokes a sense of wonder and mystery. His compositions challenge
reality and might convey a similar sense of intrigue found in the described painting.
Salvador Dalí: Known for surreal and dreamlike landscapes, Dalís use of vibrant and
unexpected colors often creates a sense of wonder and mystery. His works could
evoke a similar feeling of optimism and hope within surreal settings.
Henri Matisse: Though not typically associated with surrealism, Matisses use of
color and serene compositions in his later works might resonate with the description,
especially in conveying a peaceful atmosphere.
Marc Chagall: Chagalls dreamlike and colorful paintings often depict scenes filled
with symbolism and a sense of optimism. His use of vibrant colors and whimsical
imagery might align with the described paintings sense of hope for the future.
Features which are particularly good
