My Post-Gig Artsy Hangover

This morning I had a bit of post-gig, artsy hangover, and decided that I would try something different with one of the photos I shot months ago. The day after a show I’m usually still feeling rather artistic. Too bad my musical artistry doesn’t carry over to other mediums so easily. 😛

I’m not sure this turned out the way I expected to, but lack of sleep is making me a bit dopey. I can’t quite remember what all the controls in my seldom-used photo program do. :scratch:

In any event, I took this photo which I had titled A Modern Sax Player’s Vices, and transformed it into this…

I’ve worked with some musicians who are quite depressed the day after a show. They come alive when they are on stage, and the rest of their lives seem to be nothing but a series of intermission between acts.

How do you feel the day after a show? Are you up? Are you feeling down? Are you like me, and are you in touch with your artistic side?

…this is just my blog. My “real” website is www.bassic-sax.info. If you’re looking for sax info, you should check it out too.There’s lots there!
