What's Music Got to Do with It?


12"x24" Night on Bald Mt. painting by Janet Strayer

Can you see/hear the connection of this painting, Night on Bald Mountain, with Mussorgsky's evocative music?

Many painters I know like to listen to music as they paint. Not me. Music often takes me away with it, my full attention absorbed, so that I can't be fully involved in painting process. Yet music often lingers strongly in my mind, affecting my mood and the rhythms of the painting I start. That's the case with my Night on Bald Mountain.
