Listen now to a unique concept, as Marilyn Rose explains her passion to put the artist and the "sound" on canvas.
Since April, Marilyn has been connecting with as many local musicians as possible in local cities such as Roseville, Sacramento, and Davis. She gathers inspiration from their music while sketching and taking video, from which she creates 9x12” pieces. She doesn’t aim for a photographic likeness of either the musician or the instrument, but strives to express the spirit and passion that results from the interaction of the two.
Fifteen of these “portrait impressions” have been painted, with another 15 to go. Two or three larger, more formal portraits will be added to the collection, and all of the framed paintings will be unveiled at a reception at Watermelon Music in Davis, Nov. 9, from 4 to 7 p.m. The reception will be open to all music and art lovers, and all of the participating musicians plus their families and friends will receive a special invitation. Refreshments, and a no-host wine bar provided by Fawnridge Winery in Auburn, will be offered, and music will be provided by one or more of the participating musicians.
In addition, Rowan McGuire was in the studio performing a couple of his new songs.
