Down Hearted Blues.

February 09, 2014

... Trouble, trouble, I've had it all my days
Trouble, trouble, I've had it all my days
It seems that trouble's going to follow me to my grave ...


Inspired by the Jazz songs from the 1920s ánd a free day in a rather buzy schedule, I decided to spend my time on reading, watching movies, listening music and making some portraits, too! These days I am totally soaked up in songs and silent movies from the roaring twenties - and I think it shows in the photo.

The music playing in the background was that of Bessie Smith and I titled the portrait after one of her songs 'Down Hearted Blues'.

I hope you like it!
