“I particularly like Coltrane because he is the master of musical doodle. Whenever he plays, I get images out of it. The audio brings colors in addition to texture and balance. I try to figure out what key he is playing and the note is illustrated in the motion and mood of the painting. When I select colors, I think in terms of an occasion or an event that I am trying to depict. The first thing you want to establish is the spirit or the mood. When I listen to Coltrane the colors just come to me. He’s probably the only person that ever lived that uses music as a visual art.”
