Giocoso 2017 - Painted Piano

In 2017 I was chosen to be one of 12 artists to participate in Pianos on State, an interactive musical experience that takes place in Santa Barbara during Arts and Humanities Month in October. Pianos are painted by local artists and are then displayed at various locations on State Street for impromptu playing as well as scheduled performances.


My piano was located in front of The Red Piano at 519 State Street.


The design was inspired by my love of both cats and music, which includes musical terms and notations attributed to the various cats. (Click on the photos for descriptions and meanings.) The title of my piano is Giocoso, which means fun and joyful. Hope you like it!
