Music & Musicians, a musical corner by Margaret Coote
Here is a corner you may have seen before - I painted it from a different angle, a little while ago. I thought it looked nice with my table and painting things in the foreground, music stand (I'm practicing the viola part for the string quartet by Ravel), and the guitar in the chair. So I drew it again today.
This guitar, by the way, which made the trip with me from California to Rochester, is apparently on its way out. I took it to a guitar repair-person who said it was all dried out and would soon "fold up like a taco" because the top is detached from the sides. Sad, but this is one hardy, beautiful instrument. I swear it has the sea air still in it.
