-------------------------------------------------------------------

I’ve read an entry regarding the art competition by Balai Seni Lukis Pulau Pinang in one of blog that I followed. Was so eager to join but I have not been painting for quite a while now. It’s been almost 3 months! And the theme for this competition is Music. I think that is not too difficult cuz I love music and most of my artworks inspired by songs.

Tadaa!!! This piece was inspired by the movie that I watched recently with my dear friend at home, its called Immortal Beloved. I’ve watched this movie for hundreds of time, I think. I love Beethoven’s music and yes, the choice of words in this movie. It’s beautiful. Well, I might be bias as I am known as a hopeless romantic person *blush*

Music is a dreadful thing…
What is it? I don’t understand.

What does it do?
It exalts the soul…

Utter nonsense.
If you hear a marching band,
is your soul exalter?
No, you march!
If you hear a waltz, you dance.
If you hear a mass, you take communion.

It is the power of music.
To carry one,
directly into the mental state of the composer.
The listener had no choice.
It is like hypnotism!
