17th-century Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer had such an effect on me that in my early thirties, I decided to go to art school part-time to learn how to paint with oils.
After two years, I realized that as a painter, I was merely an enthusiastic hobbyist but I’m glad I learned how to draw and the process of painting with oils.
This piece is my appreciation of Vermeer. It begins and ends with a musical canon (like a “round” the same music begins at different times to create counterpoint).
Because Vermeer was such a master of form and balance I thought that the inclusion of a canon was the right touch to precede and follow the improv section.
Take care and be safe.
