I am on to the next painting for this project. I have four paintings to paint in four weeks. I have to factor in time to get them scanned which is a four hour round trip, and time for shipping them to Durham. I will tuck this painting away now for a day or two and bring it and the other two finished paintings out for a last viewing and tweaking, before taking it up to my printer to be professionally scanned. I will then send the jpegs out to Duke's Chapel Choir, so that they can use them for advertising, posters, programs, etc. I was able to listen to Duke's Chapel Choir last week, directed by Dr. Brian Schmidt (originally from New Ulm, MN and a former member of my church) which plays livestream from Duke's beautiful chapel at 4:15 CT on Thursdays. It looked like the choir had about 18-20 people and wow! They sounded beautiful. The voices and acoustics were amazing. I am very excited to hear their concert on April 21st. They will be using each of my paintings to accompany each cantata, as a way to deepen the experience of the audience. I will go out a few days early to talk to a couple of classes about my work and these paintings in particular. It is an interesting experience to be creative without much brain-rest. Tiring in a whole new way and hard to explain. So, we'll leave it at that. I am thankful for the opportunity and only need to whine every once in awhile....for good measure.
