A big thank you to Rebecca Lappa for the amazing performance at Paint by Music event on Feb 23rd. She provided us with some beautiful inspiration and we all enjoyed painting how your music made us feel.
A special thank you to Sweet Pea Cafe & Playhouse for hosting the event and providing us with tasty beverages and treats to enjoy while we painted!
Renovate Organics sponsored our draw prize and swag bag items. Other items in the swag bags were provided by Hye Fashion, Crafting with Rhonda and Rebecca Lappa. We like to support local businesses and are glad we can provide an opportunity at our events.
As the evening went on, I became more comfortable and relaxed with the process and just let the inspiration take over
I find that my initial response is to listen to the lyrics however, during this event, I tried to focus on the feeling the music created in me
I loved how the musician came around and interacted with us
I enjoyed exploring my initial feelings & reactions to the words & music and then translating them into a visual medium - fasinating!
It is fun to see how different music calls up different feelings and how that is made visible in the paintings
A thoroughly enjoyable reflective and insightful evening
