I began painting after years of studying alternative healing modalities. As a challenge to myself to better appreciate musical albums as a whole the way the artist intended (as I was typically a ‘Greatest Hits’ type of listener), I decided to paint while listening to an album in its entirety.
My interpretation of the energy of the music began to flow onto the canvas with each listen. I chose the canvas, colors, brushes, and strokes while the album played. After several (sometimes dozens) of listens through each album, a final piece of art resulted. I now can almost hear the music when looking at one of these works. I’m currently working on the 14th painting in this series.
