Still my guitar gently weeps

About two years ago, I worked out a trade with three musicians who wanted me to give them some basics about music theory. In return, they modeled for me. I sketched them and took a few photographs of them.

Since then, I have pulled out my sketches many times and tried to do something with them, but always without success. Maybe I wasn't ready. Maybe I was forcing things. I just could not make it happen.

Finally, this painting starts to say something to me. Something about this man. This musician. His heart. My feelings for him and for the music we made when we played together in a band.

I am enjoying the painting you did of your musician friend. The long wait between then and now seems the perfect amount of time.... At last he is painted and painted well.
You've put up a video that is fun for me-- that is my favorite George Harrison song. George ....the underrated Beatle.

Youthful hours and hours spent listening to the White Album. So glad you liked the song -- a nice acoustic version and no Eric Clapton!
