Painted Violins 2011 - Part 2

Here is the back of my painted violin, inspired by Mozart's Horn Concerto #4.   One of the Bass Hall angels has traded her trumpet for a french horn to sound the hunting call.

Below are the photos I used for reference:  Bass Hall angels, and musician model -- thanks Karen!


  1. Zowee! That is a great idea. It reminds me of a Shakespeare in the park poster that you illustrated years ago. That one had a french horn with a cardinal. Hey, it a series of horns with winged creatures. Deep.

  2. Using the French horn instead of the long regular horn allows you to zoom in to a close up. How much did that factor into the switcharoo or do you just like the french horn better?
