Taming the sax.

 One evening my husband was preparing dinner. On his cutting board I found a Spanish onion just cut in half. I said to Tony "look at that face in the onion! I promptly took the onions away to Tony's dismay. I found a white piece of paper, stood one half of the onion on it and lit it with a desk light. The shadow it cast looked like his shirt. Viewing the photos on the computer the characters were very obvious. This one called "Taming the Sax" All I needed to do was add the saxaphone and pants and the music stand and  facial detail.  The colour of the artificial light helped create the atmosphere.

I selected this instrument because Ari is learning this instrument at school and his cheeks were very full of air, like the onion.
