A violin was donated by Gemma Sturdevant in Memory of Edwin Jarnicki for me to paint. It is being auctioned off now for the 50th anniversary of the Northeastern Philharmonic. I chose the handstand figure with the moon behind it because I believe art and music increase levity, playfulness and spontaneity. I wrote around the perimeter: "like the moon I wax and wane but do not die, what leaves from me, returns to me" by Rumi which resonates with me. The numbers represent my age going up to 53. They signify the power of the present moment and the limited amount of time we are on the earth.
