Oboe study on blue - 6" x 6" woodwinds watercolor by Jamie Hansen
This oboe was inspired in part by one that I thought I wanted to play in middle school. There are so many complex valves and buttons on this glittering instrument. Each has different possibilities and different directions. I'm so glad that I chose the direction that I took, but I think it's just our nature to wonder about the possibilities and the notes left unplayed. Do you have notes that you never played?
This painting would be at home in a music room or studio. This professionally printed giclee of my original watercolor comes framed in a contemporary white-on-white frame and mat.
