This weekend I'm going to perform an improvisation recital "Circle of Life" based on the paintings of my late dad in our church.
In addition to the organ sounds, the listeners will have a chance to experience some of his most fascinating paintings in the form of multimedia slides.
Not only the entire painting will be visible on the projector screen but also I'm preparing as many as 35 close-up photos of each work so there will be lots of interesting details.
In the past I've done a few improvisation recitals like this. You can see the excerpts here and here.
Some people have remarked in the past that when you do this, those fragments became like full-size abstract paintings.
Below are a few photos of what I'm talking about (taken from the painting "Circle of Life"):
