A Cellist’s Self-Portrait” (16”x20”) is an archival giclée print uniquely embellished with a hand-drawn cello excerpt from the Schumann Cello Concerto, gilded with gold metal leaf. The original drawing was completed with Faber Castell Polychromos colored pencils in shades of gray and black, nearing 50 hours to complete in the early pandemic of March 2020. Searching for identity when "the music stopped," the artist/cellist embraced the physical wears that many years of dedicated practice made permanent; she was still a cellist, even without a stage.
