Artist's Description

This piece is inspired by several phrases I hear in my occupation. One is: “I don’t know how it happened,” and the other is: “I don’t drop my violin, it just drops itself.” The tragedy portrayed in this piece is one example of what can happen to a string instrument in the hands of a clumsy youngster. Luckily, this can be repaired and the student will have no more excuses for missing orchestral practice. This piece is painted with Rublev 18th century reproduction watercolor paint on Arches 140# cold pressed paper. The heavy granulated pigments of the Rublev paint in conjunction with the course Arches paper create some very interesting granulation characteristics that make this piece come to life.
