I always wanted to paint violins. I love their music, the way they sound. Even though I had no free time and had to get up early on Sundays I decided to paint the violins.
So I took a big canvas and tried to paint them as realistic as possible. I wanted the people who looked at the painting to hear how they sound.
I liked to draw their shapes made of wood covered with varnish. When I was painting I imagined some great musicians playing them. Wow! It’s so
interesting to paint the story of somebody’s life and wonder about the master that made them many years ago! They were only a piece of wood then, but by the hand of the master
an artwork was created. After that a musician played the violin opening his soul for people, showing his feelings.
And now I have a possibility to portray them.
So not only am I the creator of this picture: everyone who made them and played also invested soul in them!
& great instrument is, in itself, a work of art, before a note is played.
Love this post about the violins, and the picture. I bought a violin two years ago when I started learning to play. The more you play it, the better the tone gets. A violin that isn’t played looses some of its resonance, it’s beauty. Thank you for stopping by my blog – it meant I could find yours and this beautiful picture.
I can absolutely here the sound of these gorgeous violins. This is amazing work. What a gift you have!
I had to examine your painting more carefully because I was under the impression they were real violins! Well done!
wow this is amazing. you’re such a talented painter. i can’t definitely hear the music!
Everything around us has a story! You certainly have captured the story or the feeling of the violin.
Wish I could play a violin, and especially one of those in your painting. It would sound marvelous!
Wonderful violins…you have a great talent!
I played the violin in Jr and high school. These paintings are awesome.

Wow, these violins Artwork is very expressive 🙂
Canvas, pigments, brush fibers – just like the wood and varnish was the starting point for your subject you’ve shown how in your hands these basic elements can become images with a life of their own as well. The paintings sing.
I played the violin as a child….I love your painting and the words you said about it too. Great work xxx
