I've got the Blues

When I saw IA's theme this week,
"I've got the Blues"
I immediately thanked Stephanie
and knew what to do...a project I've had flitting around my head
and when I saw the guitars in my Messy Studio
I created another Melange...
This time Woody Guthrie and Pablo Picasso.
Picasso's painting Old Guitar Artist from his 'Blue Period'
And Woody's famous words are a perfect marriage, I think.
That fact that both artists were alive during the same time
and are both an inspiration to many new artists today,
proves their enormous talent for creating from the heart.

My Leo bought this guitar from a junk shop.
The guitar is not in good enough shape to play, but he thought it was cool
because it is Italian.
The nut didn't fall far from the tree :)
It will hang in HIS apartment now.
(one less thing in the studio)

I have to comment on one more thing...
YOUR comments.
I feel so much better.
I had a lot of real laughs and some good ideas.
I know I can conquor this.
I printed the comments to frame
They are a very special gift from all of you, something to treasure.

Hugs to All,
