The Colourful Musical Mind

The painting is how I think the inside of my mind would look like if it could be taken out and painted. It has all of my different interests; sailing, gardening, swimming in the sea, parties, colour and music. It is like a puzzle that when it is looked at the viewer needs to put the pieces together in their own mind. I listened to music as I painted it. Billie Eilish and the Imagine Dragons being my favourites. Kandinsky is my chosen artist who had synaesthesia and he also used music while working on his paintings and his work has inspired my work.
