Watercolors

for Symphony Orchestra (2,2,2,2 - 2,2,2,0 - timp, 2 perc, hp, strings)

When I take a break from music, I turn to painting. My favorite media are watercolors, acrylics, and ink. When the paint is introduced to a wet canvas, it takes a life of its own with unpredictable results; colors seep and melt into one another, accidental splashes become joyful bursts of energy, and new textures and patterns emerge. The creative process, both for painting and music composition, is full of such colorful surprises and lucky accidents. "Watercolors" for symphony orchestra is a playful sonic canvas expressing the joy of creativity.
