There will be some wonderful paintings, mixed media and photography on view. Work by artists such as John S. Reynolds, a prolific painter who also happens to be a prominent jazz musician will be on view.

The artist revealed to me that one of the works from the show, Oil Fields and Orchards (above) was an unplanned creation. The unexpected image just flowed from his brush.

Reynolds’ work has been part of group exhibitions throughout Los Angeles. He once sold a painting at one of his music gigs. He brought the painting to use as set decoration and sold it right off the wall.
