I began this blog in September of 2009. It was inspired by the Painting a Day movement. Although most of the earlier work posted here is less direct and involved more than one sitting to complete, the idea was similar to the daily painters in that I intended to regularly offer small, affordable oil paintings, mostly of the human figure, that were consistent with and derived from my larger, more thematic work. My intention was to post a new painting every other day, and the project was quite successful. However, I have now turned my attention to commissioned portraiture. I will continue to post both new and older work to the blog. Please come back often, or subscribe to follow this blog at the link below. I look forward to your comments, and please email any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
It's a beautiful painting, but that's a mandolin.ReplyDelete
It's the old Italian style with a gourd-shaped body.
I have one like it sitting around as a decoration and play the modern F-hole mandolin. Too bad mandolin orchestras are no longer in vogue. Research how popular they were at the turn of the 20th century in America and especially Italy. There were all-female mandolin orchestras in Italy. Take care.
