I did not intend to make music or portray musicians but I wanted to paint my own music. I tried to find inspiration in my own sense for music and began to paint scores. Music may well be the most accepted abstract art form there is. Classical music in particular is full of romantic, scenic and other references. To many people the title is sufficient to be able to see in their minds what the composer has written into it and expressed.
