Drawing Attention … December 16th, 2020

The twentieth century avant-garde composer, John Cage, was famously impatient with music until it included natural sound, produced without the pre-conception of human beings–only planned by time and chance, so to speak.

I had a similar sensation one afternoon last week, while viewing one of my paintings as the light from the curtained window played upon it, creating streams on the work I never envisioned nor intended–but found charming and fascinating.

So I videoed it with music playing behind it–Christmas music, matter of fact.

Music: Heraldation from “Have Yourself a Clazzy Little Christmas”

by Jonathan Richard Cring


I had an identical experience several months ago, viewing my John the Baptist painting with a beam of light creating a jagged scar on his face. It was such a powerful image that I debated painting the scar onto his face. I still might. What do you think?
