Fun with Painted Violins
What happens when Cuban music collides with Haydn's London Trio and a bunch of painted instruments? A lot of hip-swinging fun. Thanks to everyone who came out to be a part of the First Thursday Art Walk in Pioneer Square. This was a great opportunity for me to recycle a ten painted violins and a cello that I made in college and create a new performance piece out of them. Hearing Baroque music sparkle out of one of my paintings always reminds me of why I make art. I how visual art has a tactile permanence to it, and I love how music evaporates the second it is born. It's so much fun to put them together!
