STUDY FOR A PAINTING ON A PIANO BY TOM BROWN



Today I am sharing something unusual – a 10x10 inch vignette study of oranges and blossoms, done on unprepared masonite as preparation for a larger undertaking: a painting on a piano.

I had been asked to create a painting of my choice on the piano shown above as part of an event sponsored by the Pacific Symphony Orchestra. The study above was preparation for that project.

Recently I received word that this piano has been purchased from the Pacific Symphony by the Great Park.

My painting on the piano features a panoramic scene of the citrus groves for which Orange County was named. The art style I used is similar to nostalgic Orange Crate Art popular in the era when the Orange County Citrus Industry was in its heyday.

I hope you enjoyed this little glimpse behind the scenes. Thanks for looking.
