Improvising

Life is a lot like jazz... it's best when you improvise.
George Gershwin 1898-1937

This is a portrait I did last year of bluegrass musicians Laurie Lewis and Tom Rozum. They really do know how to improvise. Here they’re coplaying (I think I improvised that word) each other’s instruments.

This week’s Corner View theme is “improvising”. To see more improvised posts visit the blogs below. Thanks to Theresa for hosting.
