painting with copper leaf on easel

Serenity II

30" x 40"
watercolor by Jamie Hansen
Soundtrack: "Serenity " ( O Magnum Mysterium ) by Ola Gjeilo

The latest in my music series is a larger version of the painting inspired by Serenity (O Magnum Mysterium), a song by Ola Gjeilo that feels ethereal and hopeful. Watercolor and copper leaf on board.

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.
