|"Listening to "Ave Maria" by Schubert"|
Pastel on Canson Mi-teintes paper
My new series is about my personal visual interpretation of music. I am choosing bands and composers who have had the most impact on my life. As a child my family was very involved in the musical program at our church, and I grew up loving Schubert, Bach and Handel. I sang, played trumpet and piano for various churches until my mid 20s when I felt that I had to give up music to focus on visual arts.
I no longer go to church, but I have been doing a lot of praying lately. I no longer perform as a musician, but I am constantly listening to music in order to stay calm and ease my anxiety. Finally, now I have decided to combine my loves into this series. Listen to this golden, rich song by Schubert. It is filled with love. I hope that I have done him justice. https://www.youtube.com/
