When he found out he had terminal illness he left his teaching job to pursue his real passion - painting. “Floating Man” is in a series of paintings depicting what he felt was happening to his body/soul. He used a fascinating technique: he cut different levels into the plywood and painted them - it’s actually relief painting. So I layered different types of wood on this peghead, including purpleheart, maple and ebony and then I cut into them and painted his image. This is my tribute to Henry. — Linda Manzer 11 CLASSICAL AND BEYOND | Surfing the Third Wave | PAUL ENNIS 14 MUSIC THEATRE | Synchronicity and Innovation in a WATERSHED Spring | JENNIFER PARR 16 MUSIC AND FILM | A Concerto is a Conversation Counters a Limiting Trope| GLORIA BLIZZARD ACD2 2821 15 HISTOIRES DE GUITARES II Guitarist David Jacques returns with a second volume of Histoires de Guitares (Guitar Stories), featuring 15 historical guitars from his private collection.
