The Inspiration

The first time I visited Hillcrest Farmer's Market I saw this man playing the violin. Since I LOVE violin music I was drawn to him and decided to paint him. After I painted him I went back and this time I introduced myself to him and showed him the painting. He was thrilled! I was happy because sometimes people don't always like to see themselves in paintings. His name is Wayne, he is 71 years old as of 2017 and he began to play the violin when he was 25. He wishes he would have started playing earlier in life but I'm so glad he is able to play for others still. 

If you look closely, you will see that I edge music notes in the blue background.
