The Lutenist

Linnea thought I should try learning to play the lute so I purchased a beginner 8 course (8 rows of strings)
Renaissance lute. The instrument is daunting! What is it about the plucked string sound that is so inviting?
Here is a pen and Ink I did thinking about the lute players of the past.  Did you know the Lute came from the Egyptian 'Oud?...and that the Oud had it's beginnings from the Chinese 'Pipa'?

Young Girl

Inspired by the peasant paintings of the past I thought I might do one of my own design. The heavy cloth makes for a dramatic framing of the face. The laborer and the sanctity of their daily toil is not to be taken lightly.
