Golden Oldie

This is a repost, the first on the 17th Disappeared.
THANKS to those who commened before, I really appreciate all the wonderful comments that were posted, but sadly gone.
ENJOY!!
Commissioned by my brother for a benefit auction for a scholarship fun in memory of a member of the NTMA whose son passed away in afghanistan.
He bought both of my Sax paintings and wanted two more for the auction, musical in nature.
This is the first of two... working on #2(See WOYE thread).

Reference photo:
The photo printed out really red but I Liked it and chose to go with the Brighter colors.

Re: Golden Oldie

That is amazing, How many layers did you use to get the final product?

Oh, beautiful painting Kathie!

I really like your choice of colors, and the way you painted the wood grain. Wonderful composition also.
