Play what's not there.

"Don't play what's there, play what's not there." Miles Davis

A rust dyed rayon background, Dupioni silk for the quote strip, silk tussah for the big black rectangle, black, burgundy and buttercream musical note cotton prints around the portrait, and painted fiberglass window screen for the horn. The face is printed on bleached muslin. The writing is gold metallic paint pen. Black cotton binding. 34x40

The quilting is copper metallic Mettler and the quilting pattern on the background is a sort of modified woodgrain looking pattern.
