    I love the interplay of the hands. It is not a drawing as much as a composition.
    The heads interlock, it feels like a kiss. Are they bubbles of bliss or a constellation?
    The upright piano tuggs at my heart for my music teacher played an upright and
    she had pussy willows in a vase. Sixth grade memories….

  • What a lovely comment, J!! Thank you. The ‘bubbles’ in the background are the lights of the Christmas tree. You can just see the edge of the tree if you look at it larger. I decided to sacrifice some ot the pencil detail in the dark areas in favor of the detail in the highlights. Do you still play the piano, my friend?

    Experimenting with showing some detail of the texture that the illustration board added in this re-posted image. It is a better scan. Tricky scanning a larger drawing in B+W.

    Fantastic work, Susana! Reminds me of my grandchildren. When they visit they all love to try the piano. (One takes lessons and does very well!)

  • You must play the piano, Dot! Yes? I’m envious! I hope my grandchildren will play some instrument at some time… Thanks so much for your comment, Dot! ♥
