notes of inspiration . . .

This painting by Felicia Marshall reminded me of how I also like to draw and paint musical instruments.  It's amazing what Felicia can do with acrylics!  I haven't done a drawing like this in a while - that's why she's really holding on to that violin!  I will try to loosen up a bit on the next drawing.

I've been drawing so much lately that today I decided to do an oil painting without any drawing first.  Today I listened to Helen Van Wyk who once said 'you draw a drawing - you paint a painting.'  I will post it when dry.
