Dancing Muse

Drawing-a-Day 25

Iris the Art Muse has been working very hard of late. So tonight I invited her to come along to a contra dance. I play flutes and pennywhistle in a traditional dance band called Rig-a-Jig — we play Celtic and Old-Time music for contra dances and other called dance forms. Well, Iris had a great time at the dance, and she wanted me to draw dancers. Just because we were having fun was no reason to neglect the challenge!

Iris: "Hey, what about that drawing a day, huh?" Me:"You're not getting off so lightly, Muse — I borrowed a pencil off of our fiddler!"

Iris: “Hey, what about that drawing a day, huh?”
Me:”You’re not getting off so lightly, Muse — I borrowed a pencil off of our fiddler!”

I just had time in between sets to sketch her on the back side of a sheet of my dance music!

(By the way — I’m thinking of making Iris’s adventures into a little comics zine. Stay tuned!)

    • The dances are always fun — I’m so lucky to play with such a great bunch of musicians. I can’t dance myself (bad knees), but I enjoy watching everyone swirl around from my vantage onstage.

      Iris’s friends will also show up eventually, so you’ll have to introduce her to your muse!

I'd love to know — what do you think about this?
