YOUR MOMENT OF MUSIC AND ART WEEK 14, from Pam and Wendell

This video for the last day of March/beginning of April features my arrangement of the beautiful song “Til There Was You” by Meredith Wilson (you will know it either from the musical “The Music Man” or from an early Beatles recording of it)– paired with Wendell’s glorious painting “Treeline #1” (acrylic, watercolor pencils, markers on paper, mounted on panel, 10 x 10, 2018) wendellmyers.com pamelahowland.com

This week I tried something new for the video, superimposing up to 4 different layers. I was afraid it might be too much, but I think it worked pretty well.

YOUR MOMENT OF MUSIC AND ART, WEEK 13, from Pam and Wendell

This week features a very blue fusion (both in palette and mood) with Wendell’s evocative painting, “Nocturne No. 6 in G Minor,” paired with the melancholy spiritual, “Sometimes I Feel Like A Motherless Child.” Wendell says about it: For week 13, I chose the painting “Nocturne No 6” because, although it was painted specifically in response to a different piece of music, the austere, almost desolate landscape fully reflects the emotional character of “Motherless Child.”

Today – St. Patrick’s Day – we present the beautiful song from “The Wizard of Oz,” – “Over the Rainbow.” Pam’s arrangement is fused with Wendell’s “Gold and Rose” painting (30 x 30 acrylic on canvas) — and we hope you enjoy this 2 minutes and 34 seconds! pamelahowland.com wendellmyers.com

YOUR MOMENT OF MUSIC AND ART, WEEK 11, from Pam and Wendell

Pam and Wendell welcome the March time change with a fusion of Pam’s arrangement of Gershwin’s “Summertime” (pamelahowland.com) with Wendell’s brand new painting “Low Country Gold” 30 x 40 acrylic on canvas (wendellmyers.com) We look forward to many more hours of sunlight and wish you a happy spring!

For this week’s painting, I wanted to evoke the South Carolina low country around Charleston and Kiawah (Kittiwah) island, settings of Gershwin’s “Porgy and Bess,” the opera which includes “Summertime.” This painting recalls the maritime forests and salt marshes along the Kiawah river.

YOUR MOMENT OF MUSIC AND ART, WEEK 10, from Pam and Wendell

For Week 10 we are combining Pam’s “Amazing Grace Celtic Medley” with Wendell’s “Six Trees with Yellow Sky” (acrylic on canvas, 12 x 30 from 2011, http://www.wendellmyers.com). Pam arranged this medley for her Dad who was very proud of his Scots heritage, using several favorite Celtic tunes -Shenandoah, Loch Lomond, Auld Lang Syne, anchoring them with Amazing Grace. She says, “I love playing this piece because sometimes I have the feeling of not being sure which one I am playing (because they all have pentatonic melodies), and they all take me back to my childhood.”
