I played the Viola for almost five years. Today I think I would have chosen the Violin, but in those days, I loved the deeper tones of the cello. When there wasn't a cello available I chose the Viola.
I love the look on that kitten's face--it seems there's a broken string dangling there. And the dog is howling--obviously enjoying herself.
Hmmm... the little girl doesn't seem like she's into practicing, does she? She's holding the bow all wrong, and from the look on her face she'd rather be playing outside in the garden!
