Leon Russell's musical career spanned 60 years as a songwriter and piano player with a unique style & voice. Over the years, I attended two of his live concerts and enjoyed his music very much. As a piano player myself, he inspired me to learn some of his songs on piano.
I completed this watercolor in September 2020 and is based on his "Leon Russell Live" 1973 album cover photo. His famous top hat visual is a great color combination with his long hair and beard. This painting area is 9" x 12" with a 1" white border.
