Vintage Phonograph Print

This image is inspired by a musical windup toy I had as a little girl. I would put little plastic records on the player and lay down on my playroom shag carpet to listen. I loved memorizing the simple tunes and would stay there for what seemed like hours. The phonograph in this picture probably provided some Victorian child with endless hours of amusement. Ladies and their beaus might have danced to it’s lovely songs.

I enjoy the natural inconsistencies and wobbles that appear when a human tries to reproduce something precise and mechanical. My painting hand naturally shakes so this is visible in some of the lines.
