Devin-age 10 virtuoso

Monday, August 23rd, 2010

The piano I painted with Josie Wise has been on the street and is being enjoyed by many who come by to have a mini jam session. The other day I was treated to a wonderful concert by a young but very talented pianist named Devin. He’s young and is super talented. Apparently when he’s worried about life or otherwise distracted he sits down and plays. If only this worked so well for the rest of us we’d have a symphony on the streets of Downtown Everett.

Check out Devin jamming.

Street Tunes is in Full Effect

Last Wednesday the painted pianos made their debut. They were launched, set out and ready for play time to begin and the community has stepped forward and protected the pianos. I’ve had numerous people come by the studio to express their joy at the pianos or have people smile as they walk down the street. I had one businessman take a break from his day, sit down and give a concert to the neighborhood. He even started singing! What was the most incredible aspect of it all was that the people walking by had huge grins on their face and were so receptive to his spontaneous concert.

I’ve heard rumors that we made the CNBC news and here is a clip from our King5 news 20 seconds. I’m gathering videos of people playing my piano and will be joining them all together over the next week… stay tuned! hah pun totally intended.

It is simply inspiring to be surrounded by such fun! So I’ve started two paintings, finished one today and am working on a second that I should be able to finish tomorrow. It’s the kind of thing that makes me grateful to be a part of this wonderful corner studio!
