Oh boy! These topics are getting harder. This week's theme is MUSIC. So here is my interpretation, done on 1" square, using Prisma Color pencils and black pen.
Do you remember this image? "His Master's Voice" on the RCA Victor records. I remember seeing it on the labels of the old 78 rpm records, that my father used to have. My own first 78 rpm record with this label that I owned was of Mario Lanza singing "Drink, Drink, Drink" from The Student Prince. It wasn't my favorite but it was the only Lanza record the music shop had left. What I really wanted was "Be My Love" but it was many weeks later before I had saved another seven shillings and the music shop had it back in stock.
At the age of 12, Mario Lanza was my introduction to music, opera, and other classical music. My father's love of operatic arias, which he played frequently (he had been a child tenor in his church) and a favorite children's recording "Sparky's Magic Piano" (Snafu please note) were other motivations. Finally, when my high school choir performed "Il Trovatore" and "Carmen" I was hooked.
In later years the King's Singers, a British a capela sextet, who have a great USA following
cemented and broadened my love and knowledge in this field.
