17″ x 14″ unframed original painting on off-white 93 lb (150 gm) archival paper
This one-of-a-kind unframed original pencil, ink and watermedia painting was created by New Orleans artist Emilie Rhys on May 1, 2014, during a live music performance at Buffa's. Aurora Nealand is depicted listening to Tom McDermott, piano, awaiting the moment for her to resume playing clarinet.
While most of the artist's live-music drawings are completed on the spot in the venue, some receive additional work, and in this case the paint was added at the artist's French Quarter art studio.
Ms. Nealand will receive a cash commission from the sale of this artwork in which she is depicted.
