"Ten Trombones"

Provenance: 1963. Stencil (Screen print). Ochre, brown, red, blue, black, orange, purple. Image 22 X 23 1/2 in. on sulfite cover stock paper. Un-numbered. Signed Lower right. Also in collections of the Jerry Olson Estate and Pauline Buckles, California.

Comment: I don't know how many of this image--probably not more than half  a dozen since it was one of the most ambitious prints I created, and all of them were sold about the time I graduated from Central Washington State College. These cousins, are among the earliest of my art patrons among others in my family who paid close attention to my progress in college. That college was small,  with a lot of good interaction among faculty from different departments, and support for the art students--both in exchanging ideas and purchase of the artists' works-- came from everywhere on campus. This print is part of the music series that I did in my years at Central.
