I was instantly drawn in by this lovely painting. Preparing for the Ball? We’re not sure if she’ll be playing or dancing. Perhaps she hopes for a dance with the man of her dreams and she’s getting into the mood with music. Music will get you into any mood you like.
Who among us hasn’t been swept away by music? It holds such power over us, but in a good way. It’s created when something stirs within the composer’s soul. When it plays, it communicates something of the heart. And then it moves something deep within those who listen. On those levels that we know things that are too profound for words, music speaks.
The lovely young musician and dreamer in the painting is soaring. Her music has taken her to another place. To the ball and all the best it will bring.
