Acrylic Jazz Portrait Commissioned by Christine on Trombone


Christine is band leader of Christine and the Stackyard Stompers. In this jazz painting commissioned by Christine I have captured her on trombone at a 2011 Peartree Monday Jazz Club gig in Welwyn Garden City. But I admit to a modicum of artistic licence in the backdrop.

The Stackyard Stompers play authentic jazz arrangements by greats including King Oliver, Jelly Roll Morton, Johnny Dodds, Clarence Williams, Fletcher Henderson, Louis Armstrong
and Duke Ellington.

Below is my fine art print of the jazz portrait of Christine along with my poem which conjures up the aura of mystery with which she surrounds herself. Or perhaps that’s just my imagination.

Mysterious Lady

Mysterious lady,
Trombone Aflame,
Dazzling her fans
To fulsome acclaim.

 The lady prefers to be know to her fans simply as Christine, band leader of Christine and the Stackyard Stompers. Hence her aura of mystery. My portrait captures her on trombone in typically flamboyant style at a Peartree Monday Jazz Club gig in Welwyn Garden City, with a little artistic licence to highlight her stunning performance.
