Serenading the Sunset
Piece description from the artist
In this artwork, a bard is playing his lute while sitting on a rocky point next to the ocean as the sun sets over the water.
Bards were medieval entertainers, specifically, they were poets employed by wealthy patrons. The term, however, has a more generic meaning in modern culture and is synonymous with minstrel, skald, scop, musician, troubadour, storyteller or a general entertainer.
Nowadays, bards are perhaps best known as a player class in many role playing games. If fact, when I was a kid, I played a bit of Dungeons and Dragons. The bard was a favorite character type among many of my friends. As their specialty was in socializing rather than combat, magic, or stealing, the bard worked well for the players who were more into the role playing and story development of the game rather than just the combat and exploration aspects. When RPG video games came along, the bard didn't go over so well. The computer lacked the interactivity and imagination to deal with the bard the way a human game master would. I haven't played video games in over a decade, so perhaps the computer has developed enough since then so that the bard can work again. Regardless, they can make for some really nice art.
