Mozart

I'm working on a project right now illustrating the life of young Mozart.
This is Wolfgang's father Leopold Mozart playing the violin.



And here is baby Wolfgang trying to reach the keys of the family's clavier.



Mozart spills ink on himself as he writes music.

  4. Absolutely beautiful pictures! I happened upon your blog through my friend, Ronna. I'm especially intrigued with your project on Mozart as I received my undergraduate degree in music (I was both instrumental and vocal) and mozart was a good part of my focus. My graduate work was in education and library science focusing in children's lit. Looks like your project will be the best of both worlds! :)

  5. Kristen,
    This is your old friend Mrs. Frazier (KAS Bremerton). I love your site. I think of you and your family quite a lot. Can't believe you are married and your sister is on her way in less than a week.

    So your paintings of Mozart are impeccable. I believe you need to communicate with Shaye to see if she is interested in composing literary work for children with you as the illustrator. It sounds like she has the background and, according to her comments, has done the research. Perhaps a book is in your future?

    Just a thought. Blessings,
    KF

  6. All I can say is that you should be in a newspaper. You should most definitely be recognized for your work. Its not every day that I get to see art like yours. Go ahead, publish your stuff because I guarantee you that you will be noticed amongst millions of other viewers! Go ahead, take advantage of your talent, you got it!
