Posted on May 15th, 2003 in Art | Tags: art

Drue Kataoka, who paints in the Japanese brush style known as sumi-e, has composed a portrait of jazz trumpet master Wynton Marsalis. In a series of outreach events, Ms. Kataoka will offer for sale 250 prints of “Wynton Marsalis Courtin’ the Blues”, with which she hopes to raise $100,000 for the Legal Aid Society of San Mateo County.
On Drue Kataoka website there are images of the paint, a commentary and Wynton’s photos.
