Rest Stop Violinist by Jeanne Sheridan

Canvas Prints

Small (7.8" x 12.0")

Available to buy on…

This young violinist was captured as she played in a blue grass band at a Rest Stop near Lexington, Kentucky (USA). It was a very nice surprise for us weary travelers! This work is dedicated to my friend, Colleen Jarrell, who is learning how to play the violin :-)

I love capturing “life” with light… I have a deep respect for those things that have weathered time and still remain if only to tell a story.

    Yeah, half the battle is being there with the camera, then you can capture what comes along! Great instinct!!

  • Good thing I needed to stop and “rest” LOL!

    You did not photograph a child playing a violin, you captured a soul filled with music. This is beautiful!

  • Wow, thank you. Your comment is so insightful and kind. Brought a tear to my eye!
