Mixed Media

Ray Charles
I chose to create this piece as an answer to the frequently asked question, "Can you draw too?" In this needlepoint, I have separated the image into two needlepoints that are held together by rendering the rest of the image on matt board with colored pencils.
Django Reinhardt
Django Reinhardt was a Belgium Gypsy, given a banjo with guitar strings at age 11. I chose to needlepoint him because after being severely burned in a tragic Gypsy Camp fire and losing part of his left hand, he taught himself a fretting technique that compensated for his mutilated ring and little finger.
