I learned to play the harpsichord so that I would be able to paint J. S. Bach. This work was started in San Diego and finished in NYC. The Baroque architecture comes from Balboa Park in  S.D. The woman standing beside the assembled tetrahedron is a young me. Because I studied harpsichord I learned to play figure base, giving me the beginning of my understanding of music theory. I also learned about consonance and dissonance by tuning my instrument, and learning to count the beats in a fifth for well-tempered tuning. This painting can be hung on the wall as three triangles, or it can be leaned together as a sculpture. It is still together and in my new NM gallery.
