People like to listen to all sorts of music throughout the day. There is driving music, shower-singing music and of course creativity music. I would say that the kind of music you listen to really defines your mood at that moment. I mean who can really be mad while listening to Boogie Shoes! I find that policy applies to artwork. The kind of music that I like to listen to while I am painting is dependent upon the desired result. If I know I am going for a more feminine, soft painting then I listen to Sarah McLachlan or Adele or any strong female voice with a message. If I want a more fun and eclectic painting then, I'll resort to some of the oldies but goodies. If the desired result is more edgy and dark then I opt for 3 Days Grace, Ozzy or pretty much anything on my 3 days grace Pandora radio station. My style is to have a core set of elements to the painting and then just paint and create with whatever feels right. Music allows and influences me to do just that.
