Companions for the Ride
Today’s musical track is another page from the Scot Halpin “Songwriter’s Notebook.” It is a sweet, simple progression, full a nooks and crannies, just right for just the right lyric.
Today’s artwork is another graphic transformed by the miracle of the digital matrix. Scot was absolutely delighted when he realized that he could fairly successfully recreate the look of intaglio aquatinting—a technique he was in love with.
With just a few lines, Scot is able to create such a rich and complicated world. His work is often about giving fish rides in boats. The bird/bug creature does appear to be fishing. This piece was done in 2004.
