CELTIC FIDDLE STUDY NO. 6 | ORIGINAL JAN CLIZER PAINTING
14" X 28" Acrylic on Belgian Linen
A straightforward view of my old fiddle, as we musicians might observe it upon opening it's case. The symmetry and grace of these amazing creations, and the music they are capable of creating in the hands of a skilled musician are to me something akin to ethereal. The red Celtic knotwork on black in the background represents the almost bloodlike basic support that a culture provides to it's people....in this case, the Celtic nations.
