Well, just in case you didn’t know. Let’s see.
In A Matter of Chance, Lizzy plays the second movement from Beethoven’s Sonata Pathetique. I studied this piece in high school and I will still pull it out to play it from time to time. However, like Elizabeth Bennet, I don’t apply myself and practice. I guess between three kids, a husband, school, and writing, it falls by the wayside at times. Debussy’s Clair de Lune was a sentimental choice. My mother played it a lot. I think it was a bit like Sonata Pathetique to me. She’d studied it and always liked it. I’ve got the sheet music and played it a bit, but I’ve never practiced enough to be proficient at it.
I have that I’m an artist on a few things. I already have a degree in Biology, but I decided to go back to school for a degree in Graphic Design a few years ago. I’m finishing in May and when I’m not writing, I’m usually being an artist/designer. I painted the watercolor on the front of A Matter of Chance (and the back for those who have the paperback.). I love watercolor and I enjoyed using the way my instructor has described my work as the description for Lizzy’s work.
I’m sure there’s a lot more, but I think I’m going to leave it there for now.
One of my favorite paintings, still on the art board. I’d just pulled off the art tape.
