Miles Davis once said that a song is a painting you can listen to and a painting is a song that you can look at.
This beautiful description of art is so apt. When I look at a beautiful painting it hits me in the same place that listening to a beautiful piece of music does.
While I was creating this painting, I was listening to a Sarah Brightman album. Just as I was finishing up, she sang Nessun Dorma and it seemed to fit the painting so well.
Try listening to Nessun Dorma while you look at the image to experience the full effect.
