Everyone has seen the paintings of the roses on a piano keyboard symbolizing romance, etc... But, does this really motivate a child to practice. I don't think so. Driven by humor, this piece was originally going to be titled "I thought I told you to practice." After running the idea past a friend of mine, he suggested calling it "Chopstix." Although, he wanted me to add a couple severed fingers to the piece which is not really my style. I opted to leave the fingers out of the painting despite his insistence. The piece is painted with 18th century reproduction watercolor paint on Arches 140# paper.
