With a song in my heart...

Music definately plays a big role in my work. When I paint, I sit in the living room on one of my orange chairs, plug my ears with my ipod and put it on shuffle.
Sometimes the songs stick with me that they become paintings.
"Edge of the Deep Green Sea"..."Night and Day"...
So what is playing a lot on my ipod these days?
Kings of Leon
Vampire Weekend
Hot Hot Heat
Jason Mraz
Matt Nathanson...
...and many more.
As I'm piecing together my sketches for painting to begin this will definately play an essential role.

So listen carefully because the lyrics I belt on the way home may be on canvas by the fall...and you may recognize one of my lyrical images.
