I have always been fascinated by the creatures of the Rain Forest and especially the small colorful frogs.  In this piece I have attempted to give expression to that fascination by incorporating that concept in a musical instrument/art piece.  While the “conception, gestation and birth” of this piece did, indeed, present its frustrations and pain, overall it was a rewarding, if trying, experience.  She is looking for a loving “adoption” by someone who will appreciate her.
