Jazz at the Bistro now on the Greeting Card, March 7, 2010

St. Louis Jazz at the Bistro

Finally, I’m bringing out this watercolor on a 5 x 7″ greeting card, blank inside with the following caption on the back:  Last August while visiting my hometown St. Louis, I came across this incredible edifice of a jazz club near the renovated Fox Theater.  Standing outside of it made me feel a sense of loss as I noted the darkened interior, and though the business had closed its doors.  As it turned out, the club was only closed for that month of August.  I paused that afternoon in silence, trying to conjure up in my memory the fading distant notes of Miles Davis, Charlie Parker and Dizzie Gillespie.  In my watercolor studies, I have made a few jabs at blues musicians and environments, but this is my first attempt at jazz, and hopefully not my last.

    I work for Jazz St. Louis, the non-profit that runs the Jazz at the Bistro concert series. I just came across this wonderful watercolor and saw that you have made it into a greeting card. Do you sell these, and if so, how much? We have just run out of our logo-fronted greeting cards and I would like to present this to my boss as an option if it is something that you would be ok with. Feel free to give me a call to discuss: 314.289.4144.
