The inspiration for this piece was the following poem (written by the love of my life):

Music is My Life

Life…..Music…..Life….Music…..Life
Life Music….Music(al) Life
Music is Life
Life is Music

The music flowed from him
Rhythmically, effortlessly….
It poured out of him with the air from his body
His fingers conducted the air through the instrument…

And the sound that came out was
captivating,
mesmerizing,
irresistible,
beautiful,
Life-affirming

He was a phenom, a master of his craft
Or had his craft mastered him….

To the player, it was the perfect symbiosis
It was what it had to be
the only thing that it could be!

To the listener, bathed in the music,
it mattered not!

This is a mixed media collage made with hand painted paper, wax pastels, acrylic, and ink on rice paper and then mounted to Canson watercolor paper for rigidity.

I’m an abstract-expressionist painter… a mixed media, encaustic, collage artist who uses a non-objective, emotive style of creative expression and visual messaging. I create to survive, to LIVE with more JOY and less pain. ART (plus faith in God) is what sustains me.

    How creative! I looooove your work! . . . all of them are wonderful! You have inspired me! Thanks!

  • Thanks so much, Ivy! I’m glad to know you like this collage… I love music and my boyfriend plays the keyboard and used to play one of the horns… He was really the inspiration for this piece. Just finished my features so now I can browse and appreciate the works of others. Are you in any groups here?
