The Final Gig: Portrait by PollyUranus The Final Gig: Portrait by PollyUranus
'... Thy note--it is silent, thy song--it is hushed,
No more shall thy music entrance or enthral,
The music that like the blue rivulet gushed,
A finger of terror has silenced it all.

When far through the cloisters the anthem was stealing,
Thy heart was ablaze with a heavenly ray--
When thy organ was softly and tenderly pealing,
Or the bass of thy bourdon was rolling away.

Thy vespers were sweet and thy exquisite numbers
Swelled gently and hung on the tremulous air,
And, light as the prayer before infancy's slumbers,
Ascended on high--thou hast followed them there...'

Just a small part of the beautiful poem 'the Musician's Grave' by the late Lennox Amott.

:bulletred: I am incredibly appreciative for the DD, and quite honestly, shocked! It is a wonderful feeling to see so many people find something beautiful and personal in my art, and this is a perfect example of that. I want to say a giant Thank You to all the wonderfully well thought comments and support from all of the talented artists' who took the time to give voice to this portrait. :heart:

By your title and work here, it reminds me of a song by Tesla called Song and Emotion. I love your vivid imagery here.

Very powerful. It's like he is in a state of mind where he is not sure whether or not to give up his playing. He's far off into his mind. Not even bothered by the cold rain. He looks broken and hurt. I love this very much. Thank you. :heart:

This is beautiful. The feel of it is amazing just imagining playing in the puring rain. And I especilly like his face; it's very realistic and the look in his eye makes me wonder what he's thinking. I love this :D

Great work, very nice picture you made there!!

Got to say something, though.
Playing a guitar in the rain is a REALLY bad idea, lol.
Bad enough if there's moisture in the air :3

Thank you very much :) Oh yes, I'm aware of the problems of playing guitar in the rain..there are many musicians in my family..but that only seemed to add to it. :) :heart:
