Symphony Orchestra Project (2005)
In 2005 I worked with Lancaster Symphony Orchestra Music
Director Stephen Gunzenhauser to create a series of paintings
based on classical music. Stephen chose four of the Symphony’s
musical selections from the 2005 – 2006 season as inspiration
for this series of paintings. I took the Maestro’s conducting
stroke for the apex of each piece, and through repetition and
careful color choices, created works that speak to the major
theme of each selection. Works by Tchaikovsky, Shostakovich,
Beethoven and Dvorak were used.
