These colorful paintings are inspired by some of the music that I perform on the piano and also listen to in the studio while painting. The Chopin Etudes are always a favorite. Chopin himself did not name them, but over time they received titles that have become famous. This body of work is also inspired by the tempos of music (“Lento”) and, more recently, jazz compositions (“Unsquare Dance”).
