Violin Inspiration

Title: Violin Inspiration
Size: 12 x 24
Medium: mixed media and oil


This is part of my "Women in the Arts series". I varnish coffee stained violin sheet music on a primed canvas and then add layer upon layer of first acrylic and then oils. I allow some of the sheet music to show through, where the paint is just thinnly glazed with oil, so that you see some of what it is she and I are so inspired by....the music! It takes a lot of time to paint these figurative paintings but I enjoy every second of it and love the results! I hope you do too.

Here are a few snapshots from our daughter's recent recital. She is so inspiring to listen to and to watch play. The violin is a beautiful instrument.
