I was so sorry to hear of the death of Peter Tork. I was not a big fan but I admire anyone that can be successful in the music field. The show was just a two year hit but it was fun and after a struggle he was able to obtain work when it was taken off the air. Music has always been an important part of my life and I play my piano every day and hope my fingers can keep going. So far no arthritis. My grandmother and great uncle attended Peabody Conservatory which is difficult to get into and they both taught music.
My niece is married to the celebrated composer, Atli Orvarsson, who makes an excellent living composing music for movies. The most prominent one that comes to mind is Pirates of the Caribbean.
The music world has changed quite a bit. There was a time not too long ago that accomplished musicians that played with rock and roll bands were not accepted by orchestras. Now there are cross over musicians like David Garrett that play classical and popular music. I like all music and own a lot of music CDs.
My latest wildflower painting is just about done. I have two stages of it on my website and after some tweaking I will post the final version. I think I may switch to some abstract acrylic paintings for a while. Oils is my main medium but it is such an intense experience I like to work with mediums that I just use water with. Time to switch on that exhaust fan! The studio is full of the smell of mineral spirits.
