I connect with the music I'm
hearing and often listen to the
same CD repeatedly for up to 6
hours at a time while painting.

my heart and soul. I derive a
spiritual power from the music and
that of the artist who created it.
The music blends with my own
emotions, inspirations and the
paint itself to become a synergy of
I always listen to music while
