What was your source for this piece? Improvisational

Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. I have been around musicians my whole life and was a jazz/ big band singer. The jazz clubs are full of "lounge lizards" waiting for a gig--or a woman, or both. I used acrylics on a black canvas for this, plus iridescent paint for the backlit stage light effect. I mounted it on a larger flat-black canvas too increase the drama.
