The progress on my latest illustration – which I’m calling at present “Turning Heads” – has been slow, to say the least. Although I did flesh out a lot of the details of the background, the transferred fine-line outline drawing is all that I have to show at this time.
But if you’d like to hear Tchaikovsky’s Souvenir de Florence, Prokofiev’s Classical Symphony, Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances, the full-length Cinderella Ballet and a handful of other gems from the orchestral repertoire, you can stand on the sidewalk outside my window as I do some serious (as we call it in the business) “wood-shedding.” Or, better yet, come to see the San Francisco Ballet over the next two weeks at Lincoln Center. (After all, hearing the entire orchestra together with the dancers on stage will probably be a lot more interesting than just hearing a single viola part.)
And after all of this practicing, my playing might even turn a few heads.
