Drawn at a CalArts Salsa shindig in the Main Gallery.
This called out to me in a musical fashion at an art store of all places. I didn’t want to be a creeper and appear to be hovering over the little girl that was playing it when I finally located it within the store. Feigning interest in the sketchbooks, silence hung in the air and I attacked the toy piano. And fell in love. And brought it home. It’s my new toy, which apparently carries its tunes clear through multiple closed doors and walls, which isn’t so good for my suitemates… Hey, I’ve been wanting one for nearly a decade and it was on sale! Expect to hear it in soundtracks this year 😀
I have a theory.
That playing piano hinders carpal tunnel syndrome.
Because you’re not playing the same two notes over (hopefully…) Instead, you’re playing individual notes, complex chords, and are basically doing finger acrobatics.
When drawing or typing, the hand is doing the same thing over and over, with minor differences. When playing piano, it’s doing all sorts of variations of different actions.
My goal’s to practice every day. That should make drawing a lot easier 😀
That’s a photo of my piano. It’s been through some battles.
