Day 20: Billie Plays Banjo

You may have wondered what owls do up in the trees when no one is looking!

TODAY I am the featured artist on Cindy Williams’ blog!  Please check it out.   I first met Cindy through a previous 30 paintings in 30 days challenge.  She is an American transplant living in the UK.  A wonderful artist in her own right, she is graciously featuring a different artist every day this month.

Don’t know what a guiro is?  This is what Wikipedia says:  The güiro (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈɡwiɾo]) is a Latin-American percussion instrument consisting of an open-ended, hollow gourd with parallel notches cut in one side. It is played by rubbing a stick or tines along the notches to produce a ratchet-like sound.

Guiros made for children are usually made of wood and are painted with red and green.  Kids sometimes refer to it as the “fish”.

I couldn’t resist making a small collage of my Making Music series.  I will make one at the end of this challenge with all 30 paintings, but here is a sneak peak.  I made this collage in Ipiccy.
