Day or night person?
I often get asked what kind of music I listen to when I paint. Music is a driving force in my creative process. Early in my career I listened to classical music as it was what I heard in the galleries and I wanted to keep that experience of looking at great works of art in my head while creating. I then went through romantic ballads, pop music, ska, reggae, high energy and what ever mood I was into. I got into a creative phase where I sought out eclectic sounds from Aboriginal techno to chill house music. Then there was a Napster phase where I revisited ever song I ever knew. Now with the advent of the internet I have about 100 stations on Pandora. I have come full circle with classical music with a side of Jazz as my musical choice. Whats yours?
Are you a day or night person? As far as I can remember I have always been a night person. When I was in elementary school I dreaded the 8pm bedtime. As I got into jr. high and high school I stayed up later and later. In college it was many late nights that inspired my last minute heroics.
