collage experimental

I did this collage as a sequel to Havana Serenade. I was intrigued by the theme of musicians and wanted to see if I could keep on making meaningful art based on this theme. It just evolved from no particular source material. Although, I must cite the work of Romare Bearden as my inspiration.
This piece is For Sale.

Update: This piece is no longer available.
