Esperanza Spalding

Pencil on Stonehenge, 16×20”

Artist comment: Esperanza Spalding has performed many times at the PDX Jazz Festival, and although I was not able to take photos of her at those performances, I did photograph her at several American Music Program benefits. This drawing was created from one of my photos from the 2013 benefit. Esperanza is mesmerizing on stage, and I chose this photo to work from because it seemed to capture her essence in one of the “in between” moments of her performance.
