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 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.
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.
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.
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.
