Artist Melissa McCracken has a bit different approach to painting – she paints what she hears. Each of her oil paintings is titled after the song that inspired it.
McCracken actually has a neurological condition Synesthesia, which triggers her to imagine songs and musical genres as different colorful settings.
She sees jazz as a combination of blues, golds, and whites, while pop, for example, is colored bright pink and purple.

I painted this one on an angled wall above my head. My studio was too hot so I hung it up on the most inconvenient wall of my bedroom. All these guys have their own little lives and stories and this one was pretty much the last thing I saw going to sleep every night for weeks. . Pavane 45” x 45” oil on canvas sold
