I started this painting after moving from a strange new place to a strange old place. I had a new studio, a new cat. Life was good, even though it took me some time to figure out the feng shui of the room to master the light. That's when I started The Harpist. When I paint, I'm happiest with music playing. I wanted to portray sound and music with the person that I painted.
“Music is ... A higher revelation than all Wisdom & Philosophy”
