This painting features me playing my guitar to a blank wall. I use the painting to ask a number of questions about talent. I actually play guitar and at one point haphazardly tried to become a musician. But I suffer too many self confidence issues to have enabled myself to succeed. But, when I play I forget everything (occasionally I even forget what I'm meant to be playing) and drift into some kind of zone. Nothing exists but the music. The notes say something I can't utter aloud. All my feelings pour through my fingers into the guitar and out through the sound hole. It's almost like a dream, a meditation that eases my soul.

At one point I cared about who was there to hear my music, but after all that, truthfully, I only play for me and my walls.
