Louis Armstrong II 20″ x 24 1/2

This is my second Louis Armstrong Photo Art piece. This one is a close up of him blowing his trumpet. You can see his fingers on the left and his instrument to his mouth. The same medium was used as in all my others, fabric and fusible tricot. Standing away from your monitor gives a better view.

When I finished this image, I did not really “see” the face and thought that I had made my first mistake in choosing colors. My husband loved it and saw the details of his gray hair, nose, sunglasses and teeth. Unimpressed, I hung it on the wall and continued with another piece. When I was looking at it close up, it looked like an abstract blob. Two days later, I was walking down my hallway and suddenly, I saw everything! It was hanging in anotther room and I was WOWED!
When you stand away the image seems to magically appear. So stand away from your computer and you will see it too. Some people even squint to make it clearer!

This piece used thousands of fabric pieces and took about 700 hours to complete. It measures 26 x 32 inches and is my all time favorite. You can actually see the perspiration on his face. He hangs in my living room and is the first thing that you see when you come into my apartment home. I will surely miss this one when it’s

PLEASE NOTE: THIS PIECE WAS FEATURED IN diycitymag.com/the mag on July 15TH!They featured an article about New Orleans, my birthplace!
