“A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul.”
― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
This sketch of part of the musicians performing the Handel’s Messiah is crude but it wasn’t easy to accomplish. I was drawing while one of my favorite musical performances was going on but I was so close to the string section of the orchestra it felt wrong to waste the opportunity to express my thoughts and feelings with a piece of art.
Maybe one day, I’ll go back and refine the sketch, make it into something a little more like a drawing and less like a hasty courtroom-sketch but for now, it’s enough.
What was your best memory today? Did you record if somewhere?
