Violin | Whims And Fancies

 

 

 

Today’s planned Wandering Camera would have required rummaging through photos.  I am under the weather, and not feeling like sitting at the computer much.  I have been playing music quite a bit to while away the sick days.  So, here’s a little peek into my musical world.

This is my old girl.  She was quite scratched up when I got her.  A luthier spruced her up and updated her with new rosewood accessories for me, even customised her a little for my smaller hands.  My violin and I have wonderful times playing together.

 

 

 

Violin In Colour Pencil | Whims And Fancies

 

 

Violin is the first musical instrument I learned to play and it will always be my first love.  I made this card using wax colour pencils and turpentine.  I can foresee an enlarged oil painting in my future.

 

 

Cello Watercolour Sketch | Whims And Fancies

 

 

This was a quick sketch of a cello.  I was too eager to try out a new set of watercolour paints I got at the time as a gift, so I didn’t care to draw it very correctly.  It’s a quick sketch at best, but serves as a reminder to be playful. 

 

 

Electric Guitar | Whims And Fancies

 

 

A few years back, when I was living in Los Angeles, I visited a music store in Hollywood.  It had a good selection of used instruments.  I got a beautiful Fender guitar to play with.  I love the haunting sound of it.

These are the musical instruments quilt patterns I have created so far.  I have gotten requests for a few more.  They are definitely in the works.

This is Supermassive Black Hole.  I named it after one of my favourite songs by Muse.

 

 

Piano And My Cat | Whims And Fancies

 

 

I play music for myself, but occasionally I have a listener silently sitting by me while I play the piano.  It’s very everyday, but exceptionally special for me.
