Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra (DSSO) Celebration Project

While listening to the Carmina Burana Suite during the earth harp concert at the New Year's Eve DSSO concert, various images went through my mind. There were the lights, the conductor, the musicians, and the hard work put out by the harp player. You could even feel the sound. How was I going to express the feeling in a painting??

While visiting a  friend, I happened to be looking through an art book and noticed a paining that caught my eye. That was it! Something in the painting touched me.



Forest interior, by Gustav Klimt


The copy of the painting in the book inspired me to explore ideas for what was to be the  largest painting in the series so far.
