OLD MAN WITH BASS
Picasso's painting of The Old Guitarist was the inspiration behind the character of Old Man With Bass.
I had already made a bass/guitar body from found objects when I spied a thick palm frond on the sidewalk. I clipped the leaves, washed the stem with soap and bleach and poured polyurethane into it for preservation. The hands and face are made of clay, painted to resemble the instrument.
