Acrylic on Canvas 12 X 12” Each
Appalachian Spring by Aaron Copland
Final melody based on a Shaker Hymn
Simple Gifts by Joseph Brackett
‘Tis the gift to be simple
‘tis the gift to be free...
What a gift: to create music that can inspire tears of joy. I love Appalachian Spring and each time I hear it I wait for this melody. It is simple and pure and universal pleasure.
These squares are my attempt to paint a response.
