FUTURE OF FORESTRY - Dominique Eichi


                 8 x 23   Acrylic
This is for Edward's moleskin and his theme is MUSIC so my piece is about a band with a name I love since trees are involved......lol.
Future of Forestry is a musical group my daughter introduced me to. She brought me to a concert of theirs at Christmas time in San Diego. I was blown away by the sound they had. So different yet powerful, even with the traditional songs of Christmas.
This song is called SLOW YOUR BREATH DOWN from their new CD   " Travel III " ,    it is beautiful, out this June.
This is a Christian band and they are getting a lot of traction on MTV and in other arenas.
I hope you listen to them and enjoy them as much as I do.
I've always love the Cello but when I saw this one I was blown away.
This instrument I still don't know what it is but the sound it makes is beautiful.
Burst into jubilant song with music. ps98:4

They are on U-TUBE HERE


PS .. I guess this time out I'm the one that needed the push for I AM LATE,  sorry it's in the mail.

  9. That instrument is the Harmonium, usually playing Indian classical or light music on that. Sounds great. Paintings are really evocative.
