A friend just had to demo her new instrument. 12x9", on canvas textured paper.

Thanks, Sandy. She sez the real trick is learning to use the crank. The rotation can be varied to make sounds, too.

Darn you Bob, you create a beautiful painting and create questions. So off to You Tube and I spent the next hour researching Hurdy Gurdy and then onto another musical instrument that is almost as haunting, the Bansuri. Putting it back in your lap for now!

Lol Howard.. Yeah, I had the same response. Not seen this instrument before. You caught her delight in it very well

Love the pleasure you have captured on her face - in fact just like everything about this painting.

Great picture - now I've got the Donovan tune stuck in my head.
