    Cuatro & Flamboyan

    The flamboyant trees alway amaze me with their flowers every summer. Added my favorite instrument, the cuatro. AR4

    Exquisite composition, a small painting delight, almost an art- bonsai.
    Panta rei (everything flows)!

    It is a bit Bonsai-ish, but so decorative.

    As you probably know the legend of Robert Johnson one of the early great blues guitarists going to the crossroads where he met the Devil who offered him many powers over folks through his music in exchange for, what else? His soul, as Dealing Devils do.

    This looks like a crossroads Puerto Rican style. And the Cuatro is left like the eternal question held out to musicians, and all one has to do is give it their soul in exchange for cuatro wishes. . . And a new non-Andrew Lloyd Weber musical is spawned: The Phantom of the Flamboyan. . . Choose wisely. . .

    Thank you Ceasar for the fine comments. You have a keen eye. I used a Bonsai ref pic for this.

    Joel: Welcome to the forum and the world of Artrage, thanks for the comments

    Thanks to all my friends that also commented !!!

    D Akey: PR crossroads!! Cool. Just finished practicing that song to do at an Octoberfest I do every year. John Mayer covered this tune recently and I love his rendition. Of course I play it on my Cuatro..........I have choosen......

    And so you now have tres mas, three more wishes. . . but since there are ten strings. . . (watch the little hour glass appear on my glasses as I calculate the number of wishes you have remaining). . . um. . . dies menos er, I mean ten minus . . . cuatro plus 6 = dies. . . carry the quatro. . . menos uno for that one wish. . . damn. . . sorta in a crossroads manner of speaking. . . well enjoy. Nothing like a good German Octoberfest in Puerto Rico playing American Blues via some British Cream, distilled back down to an American Mayer. . . Puerto Rico style. . . Bravo! I suppose we can cross those roads when we come to them. . .
