No. 3 Trio in Triptych

No. 3 Trio in Triptych, 10x8" oil on gessobord
"Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life." 
— Berthold Auerback

Here is the final panel of my triptych. Somehow showing only the all-female string trio engaged in their music in the first two panels didn't seem complete without someone on the receiving end of their hard work, talent and magic; there's nothing worse than music falling on deaf ears.
Paused seated in partial sunlight, perhaps this man was on his way to the library, judging by the stack of books on the bench? He appears lost in his own world enraptured by the sidewalk jam session in progress? 

Music is a haven for our souls. I believe all beautiful art has the ability to transport us there. Maya Angelou said, "Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness." 
Thank you for crawling along with this project. I hope you've enjoyed the journey as much as I have. 

Together all three of the 10x8" individually framed panels create a 24x10"triptych.
