Barbara's book

Moly_x_3 Barbara's book1
Here are the entry for Barbara's book.

As mentioned yesterday, I had a lot of trouble finding the right motive. I ended up with a dragon inspired by the Norwegian stave church (Wikipedia) On it's back it has a girl. She is playing the flute. The clouds are super iridescent, do not show up in the photo though.

"I wonder what music the girl is playing:)" <--- hmm... that's what I'm wondering too. and since the notebook is coming my way, I get to pick a song. (yey!)

btw, I did play a flute when I was little (the Boehm kind, and I was in my high school's marching band ^^Y").
a flute is usually played on the right side though. (like guitars and basses, maybe there exists a small number of left-handed flutes too)

Well this it what I love about this project, getting exciting on what comes next.

I am not sure if she is right or left handed or what kind of flute she is playing, the only flute I have played is the recorder
( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Recorder )and it is held outwards from the player's lips.

@EWian: she is playing it left-handedly (opposite of how we normally play a flute).
