YOUR MOMENT OF MUSIC AND ART WEEK 34, from Pam and Wendell

Dear Friends, “Gray November” is the 2nd piece in my work called THREE SCENES FROM POLAND (pamelahowland.com). These pieces were written as reflections on my year there (last week was the first – “Field of Poppies”, and next week will feature the third movement – “Golden Summer (Michael and Briana’s Song). “Gray November” especially focuses on the gray, yes-depressing, world of November in Poland! I enjoyed finding the colors on the piano to express the melancholy, sorrow, and grief that this weather triggered. Wendell’s painting “Dark Sky with Red Hills” (acrylic on canvas, 24 x 24, 2011 wendellmyers.com ) is the perfect complement. Although enjoy is probably not the right word, we hope this fusion is meaningful to you. All the best, Pam and Wendel

“Field of Poppies” is the first piece in Pam’s new composition called THREE SCENES FROM POLAND (2019, pamelahowland.com).  She says, “For me, it conjures a train ride through the Polish countryside.” I have painted “Poppies in the Field,” ( acrylic on paper, 8 x 10, 2019 wendellmyers.com) to pair with it. For the video, my challenge this week was to use audio and video from 2 different sources. I know this is not a big deal, but since I am just learning how to edit videos, and since I have seen plenty of videos where the audio and video are poorly synced, I was a little intimidated by the thought of doing this. Because our friend, the very talented cellist and recording engineer Evan Richey was recording “Three Scenes from Poland” for Pam, I wanted to take the opportunity to have a better sound quality on several videos, as well as to make sure I could sync audio from a separate source, as well as sync video from more than one camera.

Dear Friends,

Here is this week’s fusion:

“Let it Be” (Lennon/McCartney- Pam’s arrangement) plus Wendell’s painting “Yellow Spirit Figure” (acrylic on canvas 30 x 40, 2011). We hope you enjoy this!

Best wishes,

Pam and Wendell

We decided that this jazzy little piece and jazzy little painting belonged together — GERSHWIN’S PRELUDE NUMBER 3 (pamelahowland.com) with BIKING ON THE VISTULA #2 (acrylic on paper, mounted on panel 7″ x 5″ wendellmyers.com). This painting was done in Warsaw, Poland in the summer of 2016, inspired by a bike ride through the very wild park along the east side of the Vistula.

Week 30 finds us in the heat of high summer — perfect for enjoying Gershwin’s sultry PRELUDE 2 “Blue Lullaby” – a sort of precursor to “Summertime.” Wendell’s painting called LOW COUNTRY SCENE (30 x 30 acrylic on canvas, 2019) is the cousin of his LOW COUNTRY GOLD, the painting featured in our YOUR MOMENT OF MUSIC AND ART Week 11. wendellmyers.com pamelahowland.com

YOUR MOMENT OF MUSIC AND ART WEEK 26, from Pam and Wendell

Dear Friends,

For the start of summer – marking 1/2 way into this year – we present this very jaunty mazurka in C major by Chopin fused with Wendell’s gorgeous painting of Polish flowers called “Flowers in a Vase” (acrylic on paper, 7.5 x 11).

This is one of our favorite MOMENTS to date. We hope you enjoy this new fusion!

All the best
