“Art On The Piano” is a collection of eleven pieces of art, if you will, in which the “brushstrokes” are played out on the keys of the piano. Each piece is meant to draw the listener into another aspect of coming into the present, through the five senses.

“A Blackberry Sky” reflects what I call “after the sunset”, in which the sky is streaked with deep purples and indigos, as rich as a ripe blackberry…and when one takes that in, can go on seemingly forever…

“Butterfly” describes the elegant, exquisitely beautiful grace of the butterfly, as it effortlessly glides and lights silently, yet so majestically…

“In the Quiet” speaks of the deep, reverent peace we can attain only when we let the debris of our mind go…indeed, the answers to our questions can be found in the quiet…

“Jellies”, which is short for”jellybeans” was a lot of fun to compose. It speaks of the “challenge“ one meets when posed with the decision of which jellybean to choose amongst a bowl of all the different colors and shapes and flavors… this song is best enjoyed with a handful of “jellies“ :)

“The Room” is that place in each of us that, when healed, yields our greatest potential in our life purpose. The melody intentionally has dissonances, reflecting the imperfections and “gray areas” of our life’s journey. There is relief near the end, portrayed in sequencing elements, when clarity and peace are once again revealed.

“Repose” is about “rest”, specifically mental rest…the complete surrender to the present moment, to access the much-needed restoration of the emotional system, to attain the peace we seek and require for our health and well-being.

“Walk with the Trees” reflects the ancient, lovely groundedness we can easily access when walking barefoot amidst a grove of trees; the deep peace and healing the trees can provide us.

Enjoy, and may the music continue to lighten your days…
