I was listening to Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 and playing around with some new acrylic paint. I just grabbed some paint and responded to the music. Before I knew it, this scene had appeared. I was excited by the vigorous brushwork and transparent layers. There was no reference, other than what I was feeling. It was most intuitive, as if the music itself created the painting. This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished, unpainted edges. It comes ready to hang, or can be framed for display.
