I searched out jazz birthdays to see who shared my day, and came across this name, Saskia Laroo. I wish I could say I knew of her work before that moment in time, but I hadn’t. So I found a video, which impressed me enough to buy her album, Jazzkia. More will likely be purchased in the future. As our birthday neared its end, I started the music and began doodling.
Why Blues: Margaret and I had just finished a walk outside to see the Blue Moon. This doodle is now hanging on my wall where I can see it as I look up while at my drawing table, and it may be the first time I ever drew myself a design on my birthday.
and a happy belated birthday to Saskia, glad we had this day in common. Hope you saw the moon. Maybe I owe you a birthday jazz doodle next year.
Love this one…
