Harmony, in all sensory perception, is the result of the balanced relationship between all of the elements of any stimuli. The title of this painting implicates the idea that the stimuli are harmonious in similar or parallel ways. In the science of colour violet, red, orange and yellow create an analogous harmony that I have used in this composition to represent both the tonal harmonies of hue and the tonal harmonies of music. To carry the symbolism further, analogous language enables musicians and visual artists to communicate their creative processes. Music and painting alike are described in terms of “colour, texture, and tone”. Musicians spend countless hours practicing and rehearsing; by the time the audience hears their music it sounds as if making music is the easiest thing in the world. My own style of drawing and composing requires long days of effort to produce deceptively simple lines and forms. The eyes of the viewer enjoy the pleasant stimuli of colour harmony, rhythmic lines, and atmospheric textures. One can almost hear the music.
