Ahmad Jamal

I love music! But most of the time I don’t listen to music while making art. It’s can distract me so much from what I’m doing, that it doesn’t work at all. I get absorbed by the story of the music and forget to paint.

These last weeks it is completely different. Listening to music while painting calms me down  and brings me back to the creativity. It is like i can feel the musicians muses speak to me and helping me.

The piece above I made while listening to Ahmad Jamal playing his beautiful jazz on the piano. Thank you, Ahmad!
