Music to My EARS

Hello All:
Here are my pages for Corrine's book. I enjoyed her theme so much that I completed three spreads. I chose three different types of music. First, Cole Porter, whose songs sound as good today as when they were first written. Second, Boogie Woogie Piano. These pages show the spread of this musical style beginning in Texas, and traveling with workers on the trains to the North. Boogie Woogie fascinated Piet Mondrian: this painting is called Broadway Boogie Woogie. The yellow lines represent the yellow taxi cabs in New York. Finally, I illustrated the waltz. The page on the right side is from a dance instruction manual; I found it on the Library of Congress site.
