THE FIDDLE©

I like to play with my art work. This one you can hang vertically as well as horizontally! So I signed it twice.
The longer you look, the more you see... The first one also has a look of a guitar, don't you think so?

The violin is sometimes informally called a fiddle, regardless of the kind of music being played with it.
The word "violin" is Italian and the word "fiddle" is English.
Various clichés describe the difference:
"The violin sings, the fiddle dances," or "A fiddle is a violin with attitude," or "No one cries when they spill beer on a fiddle."

As might be expected from the differences between classical and folk music, violinists tend to be formally trained and fiddlers tend to be informally trained, although crossing over is not uncommon.
