The Tuba - original oil figurative painting by Connie Chadwell


I saw this young fellow marching in a band this past summer. He seemed so small to carry this big tuba, plus, play it as he marched, but he succeeded. I just had a good time with the colors. Okay, maybe I overdid the size a little, but it was fun and, really, tubas are huge!
I actually have a CD of tuba music and it is beautiful! They are truly an underappreciated instrument.
This painting is 6 x 6" on Gessobord. Thanks for stopping by!
