This painting is about “The Lake Isle” by Ola Gjeilo. The sweeping and lilting song features William Butler Yeats poem about the Lake Isle of Innisfree.

My Soundscapes are partly born from the spaces I had painted around the musicians from my portraits project. What would I see if I looked in the spaces around them, where their music and their confidence surrounded them like a veil? Their sound and their energy would hang in the air like haze of color around them. The emotion from their music would be like a vapor that colored the space.
