Troll Painting



Today in Portland it’s raining, so I played troll, and painted the view of the 
Sandy river from under the I-5 bridge.

Fiddleback



Well I opened my mouth and look what happens. 
My friend Tom told me he used to work on violins, I asked if he had a junker around he wanted to sell. Well nice guy that he was he gave me one. It had a crack or two and some wear from being played a lot and a repair label from 1896 I think. So I asked my friend Ken who plays with a medieval band if he would check it out before I tore it apart. He took it to his friend Gail who fell in love with it and gave me two junk violins. SCORE!

A lot of friends involved here.
