Medium: Watercolor on cold press paper with archival ink, 2020

Size: 5.5x9 Inch painted on a 7.5x11 Inch paper

Frame suggestion: This piece ships unframed. Suggested frame size is 9x12 Inch matted for a 6x9.5 inch opening.


Inspiration: There is a funny story behind the name of this painting. I was in the process of adding ink to this painting and the song “I Want Little Sugar In My Bowl” by Nina Simone started playing. 

There’s a jazzy sequence in it. Well, Silo (my pet dog) started howling at it. I tried it later too, he howled to it again. Funny little guy with his tail wagging just howling away. Mr. Julie is something I call him out of affection. Therefore, love it or hate it, this one got named “Julie Loves Jazz”. 


On a more serious note, it’s my study of how well the color gray interacts with most colors. This one being with a warm yellow.
