This time of year as I get ready for Lent, the Chancel Choir at Trinity which I sing Second Soprano in, is rehearsing for their Lenten Cantata. We are singing the Bradley Ellingboe Requiem this year. So I am listening to the CD in the studio as I paint. I find doing this gives me inspiration, and also cements the music in my brain so that I can learn the notes faster.
One of the side effects of this process is that I tend to create more spiritual paintings during this time. Requiem’s tend to be dark, since they are mostly about Christ’s journey to the Cross, so the painting above reflects the mood. It also becomes personal for me, as I reflect on the past year and all I want to accomplish in this coming year.
Christ has indeed forgiven and given me grace….. I am truly grateful for all I have been given and the opportunities to thrive as an artist.
This piece is a precursor to a larger painting that I will create for the Cantata. I am looking forward to see what energies will bubble up and produce the inspiration for the Ellingboe Requiem.
