Today It’s About Art

This morning I started to take my usual journey through the recordings and YouTube videos of harmonica players but decided instead to write a post about the harmonica in visual art, particularly painting. I keep a folder of images I come across that tickle my art fancy, but as I delved deeper into the galleries of painters throughout the internet, I found some new favorites this morning. I suppose I needn’t say much more… enjoy the art and let me know which is your favorite!
