No, it’s not a cheesy painting on velvet, like the popular Elvises or Jesuses that you see at flea markets. Today’s Monday Morning Art is a digital painting based on a sketch I did Saturday night whilst listening to The Velvet Brothers at LiveMix Studio. Inspired by the Latin rythyms they were playing, I was moved to sort of rip off the style of artwork used for Miles Davis’ “Sketches Of Spain” album.
