"I would teach children music, physics and philosophy; but the most importantly music, for all the patterns in music and all the arts are the keys to learning." ~ Plato
I wanted to draw a picture of children playing music for The Three Muses this week - the prompt is Music - so I searched stock images on the internet and found a vintage photograph which was perfect. The children were standing on the table playing their oversized instruments...sososo cute. I just couldn't resist trying to paint it. It reminds me of being 4 or 5 when my parents bought me an old preacher's folding organ which he'd used when moving from church to church. On that old organ, I took my first piano lessons and have adored music every since. In the fourth grade they gave me private pastel art lessons and that was the beginning of my love of art. My parents left out the physics and philosophy which is a very good thing because I am definitely NOT a left brainer.
