To Dana Whitney


'Moonlight' By Anita Davies

This is my reply postcard to Dana.

After quite some time browsing Dana's blog, I came across her profile. Listed under the title favourite music, I saw Dana had chosen Beethoven, among others, so that was my inspiration for this piece.

I printed out some sheet music, tore it and covered the postcard with it. I 'aged' the paper with some watercolour washes, then sketched a portrait of the man himself using pigment liner.

Hope you like it Dana!

I can't wait for it to arrive. And what a gift to have you research my profile. Thanks for NOT focusing on the ghastly parts!!
Do we get to have more rounds of PPP's? I hope?

I'm wondering if there was a Beethoven fan in the Post Office....

Anita Davies said...

Does this mean you haven't recieved it yet Dana?
I hope it arrives soon.
