This work includes a piece of music that uses the painting's composition as its score (See my SoundCloud Page for the song and specifics on its creation). I finished both of these right before heading out of town for the holidays. I am very excited about this piece but felt like I needed a response that was more obviously optimistic. In a 13 hour studio marathon on Wednesday, I painted I Know Things Will Be Better (24" x 24" acrylic on panel) using the same colors though heavily tinted with unbleached titanium white. The results have an Easter basket feel but I don't mind. And yes, my daughter was accepted to Cornell!
