Extraordinary Moment

"Barry Douglas Rehearsing with the FWSO"   8" x 10"   Watercolor

Last week I had the incredible privilege of sitting in on a rehearsal of the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra at Bass Hall.  Guest pianist Barry Douglas, from Ireland, was in town to perform Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1 with the orchestra.  (You can read the great review he got in the Star Telegram here.)  I was so moved by this musical experience that I came home and painted this watercolor sketch.

I also had the privilege of meeting Barry Douglas after his performance and gave him the sketch as he autographed a couple of his cd's for me.  Life is better with music!
