Fine Tuned
Mixed Media

I paste papered over some old sheet music a while ago.  I was curious as to whether the paper would accept the paste, and, if it would hold up as a painting surface.  It seemed to work well on both counts.  Of course, the music has a copyright date of 1931, so how long it will last is anyone's guess. The musical notes added an interesting dimension, though.  It's a song titled "By My Side" with lyrics by Dorothy Dick and Bert Lown, and music by Harry Link and Chauncey Gray.

Thanks, Shirley. It was a fun surface to work on. Now that I know it can work, I'm sure I'll be doing more.
