Violin for a Little Girl

Violin for a Little Girl

A few of my friends run a musical festival every summer in Omaha. To raise money, they asked me to paint a violin for an auction. The violin was tiny - the size a first or second grader might use. In fact, one directors of the festival, flutist Marcia Kamper, had used it as a young girl. Music has such a powerful impact on emotions, that I used this violin's history to inspire me to paint what brought me joy as a child on one side, and what brings me joy as an adult on the other. The violin was purchased as a gift for a charming young girl who played the cello.
