Lew and I have watched and listened to each other's painting/music since 1972, attending each other's exhibitions and concerts over decades. The idea to compose improvisationally from each other's work Lew jumped on board first. Music moves in a linear way and painting, even though takes months to make whole, is seen in one single moment. Lew's music incites visual responses from which I continue to paint. Good thing I have a perfect visual memory!!!!!
