Sweet Solitude by MayFong Sweet Solitude by MayFong
I completed this painting before my trip to Canada last week. I finally have time to post it now.

She is playing an ancient Chinese harp (or konghou). It went extinct sometime in the Ming Dynasty (13681644), but was revived in the 20th century. The shape of the modern version of the instrument does not resemble the ancient one, rather, it resembles a Western harp. [link]

I saw a music video with a chinese song on it and the girl in the one shot was wearing something like this and was playing a harp a lot like that one-where you inspired by that by any chance?
