melange-1600x1600My sister and brother-in-law, Karin and Mike Kelleher, recorded an album that’s a fusion of jazz and classical styles, and asked me to create the cover art. I took the photo for the cover in Humiston Woods, outside of Pontiac, Illinois, during the fall, catching the mix of the color of the leaves with reflections in the water.

The design represents the theme of the album called “Melange,” which “not only blends jazz and classical compositions and styles, it also combines different eras, with unique instrumentation, including string quartet, acoustic bass, drums, guitar, oboe, and voice — all acoustic instruments and performances.”
