Call for Entries Accepted Artists
Artist Shari Vogt
West Covina, California,
Music sets me in motion. It relaxes, inspires, energizes, gives me hope, makes me cry, makes my heart race, and makes the chemicals in my body surge through my veins. It draws me further inside my mind and I enter a totally different world where I am the person I want to be at any given moment. I feel passion and desire for a better life. It makes me feel the need to capture the beauty of the world on my canvas.
I have a love/hate relationship with playing music. It’s not my forte’… not by any stretch of the imagination. But in my imagination, my fingers are tinkling those ivories in much the same way that the brush flows from my fingers. And in those times that I just play anyway, I am free and imperfect.
Sojourn is defined as a “temporary stay”, “an escape”. That is what this painting evokes in me. A momentary departure from life’s troubles. The sheet music that you see is of a real song. It was important to me that it be meaningful and remains a hidden secret known only to me.
Shari Vogt currently resides in Southern California.
