Share If You Enjoyed It

California, South Caroline, Florida lady shares her love for music through her Abstract Musicians Paintings. I’ve painted since I was a little girl, doodling & painting animals. 3 yrs ago on New Year’s Day, I asked myself the question “what’s your passion”. Music of course. Then I thought to myself, can you paint Bob Marley?? I pulled out my canvas and paints and gave it a try. Well, I never knew I could paint a face … totally different than animals …

The rest is history, I’ve gone from Bob Marley to Dave Mathews and tons more. The great thing about musicians is you will never run out of them to paint.
