"Scholarly Tiger and Brave Bird" 8x10
This is not a good photo, but as always, I'm too impatient to wait for a scan to post. The background in real life is more of a creamy cream than a nondescript gray. Oh, well. This is my contribution to Paint Party Friday and Illustration Friday. Once I do get a scan, I will indeed be posting my new little friends in my shop, which has been rather quiet as of late.
I also am the grateful recipient of an early Christmas present from a very sweet relation. This here is a mid-century Baldwin spinet. It is now sitting quite elegantly where my dining room table used to be, but it is a small price to pay for having a real live piano! I'm not terribly good at playing piano, but I do enjoy it and I can't wait to dust off the ol' sheet music and start horrifying my neighbors! I'll be a virtuoso before I can successfully explain to anyone that "no, I cannot turn the volume down." And, my new dining room will either be in my basement or in my painting studio. I haven't quite decided. This is the first new song I'm going to learn to play. Beautiful, yes?
