Thanks all for the very kind feedback about this one. Much appreciated.

This entry is a bit far from my usual, but it was a great occasion to study cubism masterpieces and measure how complex and rich they are. Moreover, while I am a musician, I can't play the saxophone. Now that I have acquired one for photo purposes (what a beautiful thing!), it is also an excellent occasion to study a new instrument. Who knew where DPC challenges can lead to!

"Moreover, while I am a musician, I can't play the saxophone."

Uhhh... I'd say the truth is more like.... "Moreover, while I am a musician, I haven't learned to play the saxophone."

You can do anything you want to do, Christophe!

This is lovely.

Edit for punctuation... to make my Mom happy.

Truly a masterwork. You've out-done yourself IMHO...and that's saying something given your body of work.

Huge Congrats Christophe! As a saxophone player I love this even more! Lovely layers are the ones with the dancing (?) leg and the shaking hands.

Fabulous. Not only cubist, but an execution entirely fitting of the subject. I know what kind of jazz to expect. My top pick!

Oh, my goodness. This is such a pleasure to look at. The golden colors and the perfection. My only ten.

I'm giving this a 7 because of the effort you put into this. I think this would have been a masterpiece if you had done a little less layering. The musical instrument tends to get lost.
