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.
