Illustration Friday: Music


The topic for Illustration Friday this week was an easy one for me- I love music, all kinds. Music has so much to do with how I am inspired as an artist, and I have several pieces with musical instruments and dancing finding themselves a main subject. Music and art for me go hand in hand- I will usually listen to music that fits the mood and it completely wraps me up in that world I am creating. On this piece I listened to a lot of Strauss waltzes and Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite, and as I was listening and working the little dancing ladybugs seemed to come alive, as if they could almost waltz right off of my paper and into my studio- music is amazing that way.
