The artist (that's me!) on a windy Plein Air day in La Paz, Mexico

Wednesday, September 1, 2010


When I am painting in the studio, music plays a key role in how the style of the painting I’m working on emerges. When I paint to the lively and dramatic guitar music of Ottmar Liebert, Esteban, Govi and Manzanares as well as the lively - bouncy French Cafe' music from Putumayo, my pieces have a variety of brush and palette knife strokes, much color and lots of action. When I paint to the mellow Native American flute of R. Carlos Nakai, and Jesse Kalu the result is a calmer and more serene painting.

I hope you enjoy the following links as all my paintings are influenced in many ways by each one of these musical artists:

Thanks to introducing me to the French cafe cd. It is great upbeat music, even though I can't understand a darn thing they are singing. I'm going to check out som of the other artistsyou mention in this post.
