Last year..

Last year in my art class we painted to the sound of music. Each person chose their piece.. I have painted this painting to the sound by Samuel Barber ‘Adagio for Strings’. This Acrylics painting is in memory of so many heros… The music was played on the BBC in memory of 9/11 and it always remind me that very sad moment….

Adagio for String

  1. This is really a powerful piece. I admire that you were able to tackle not only such tense, extremely sad subject matter – but w/ Barber’s “Adagio for Strings” as background music. I’d be pretty overwhelmed and find it hard to complete anything, but this painting shows the intensity of what you must’ve been experiencing or thinking about while painting.

    • Thank you Patricia, it was and I always try to think it did not happen.. if only we could.. Thanks for your comment and I am sure I’ll be watching your jewelry…

  2. Such a feeling of collapse in the building on the left and those two small figures trying to find their way through the chaos, and the flag planted in the rubble… the music you painted to marries with the image.

    • Thanks Cara I found it hard to paint such a chaos on the ground and yet to symbolise such a sad event. Somehow that special music guide me through.
