Rio Jam by jayalders Rio Jam by jayalders
This painting was conceptualized as a sketch Jay did during a Jam while on tour in Brazil with Donavon Frankenreiter, G Love, Matt Costa and ALO.

Between shows the crew gathered at a mutual friend's home in the hills of Rio de Janeiro and what took place was called by some of the musician's there as "The most amazing Jam session ever".

"This painting pays tribute to that experience and the musicians and friends who continue to inspire." - Jay

Can I use this image in a promotional poster for a not-for-profit Christmas fundraiser? We are holding a jam night of local musicians at a really old tavern. The feel of this painting is spot on

I first saw this as a tiny thumbnail...and it really sucked me in.
Composition A+ and ditto for all other criteria. Hey, I've had a life-long
love of guitar pickin.'

Very nice. It reminds me of Thomas Hart Benton - one of my current favorites.

Your style is so incredible! :wow:
I love the rendering/elongated limbs, and the way your eyes kinda move in a natural spiral to the center of the picture. :iconiloveitplz:
