A Painting a Day: Animal Orchestra

Day 5 of posting a Painting a Day: Animal Orchestra. For over 20 years I have drawn animals playing instruments on posters for the Lenape Chamber Ensemble’s children’s concerts, and so one year I decided to paint a full color version to use on a Christmas card. (I sell them on my Store page.) As I’ve mentioned elsewhere, I really enjoy drawing musical instruments, not only because they are functional in producing beautiful music, but also because I find them beautifully designed objects of art.
