Today I made this digital collage with the image that I found on my daily dog walk last week. I don't play any musical instruments, but I love their forms, especially stringed instruments. As a child, I wanted to play guitar, (it was the early 70s, and I thought it would be way cool), but I was left-handed and my small Catholic school had very limited offerings in the music department. I was not liberated enough to consider the drums at that age -- not to mention my father probably would have sent me to boarding school if he had to come home to drum practice in the evenings!
For musicians and many other artists, the tools of the trade are often as much a work of art as the sounds or forms they create.
