I sketched this wooden carving while waiting for friends at Monsoon Thai Food. I painted him when I got home. I didn't know what the flag like carving on the side of his meant, if anything. But I began to imagine it had to do with the spirit of music streaming through the mind of this musician as he play his little music in such a contorted position. He sits in the window with a calm demeanor. In my memory he is much more animated.
