Music Notes is an ongoing body of work of abstract and expressionist paintings with the figurative addition of music notes. Several years ago I created a few illustrations with music notes which were subsequently licensed. Much later I returned to the theme and began incorporating it into paintings. As the son of a carpenter I’ve been using construction tools in my art process over recent years. This includes snapping a builder’s chalk line to form the lines of the music staff in some of the music note paintings.

    On Target

    ,
    Every inch of On Target is rich with texture and detail. It measures 36" x 40" x 1.5". It’s acrylic on canvas that has been hand-stretched by the artist and gallery-wrapped onto thick stretcher bars after the painting was finished. In other words, the painting seamlessly wraps around the edges. It doesn’t require framing, but it could be float-mounted in a wood frame if desired. See the accompanying video further below to see it up close!

  • Notes of Gold contemporary art music painting
    $995

    Notes of Gold

    ,
    Eye-grabbing and perfect for any music lover, Notes of Gold measures 36" x 36" x 1.5". It's acrylic on canvas with a secret recipe of ash, chalk, graphite, and oil pastel thrown in. I stretched the canvas myself and gallery-wrapped it onto thick stretcher bars. The edges are painted, so it doesn't require framing.  I worked a very long time on this one. Then I let it set 2 or 3 months, mulled it over, and decided to work it over some more. The result is a painting with great depth and detail. This painting is part of my music notes series.

  • Red Note on a Sea of Blues painting by Terry Smith

    Red Note on a Sea of Blues

    Red Notes on a Sea of Blues is part of an ongoing body of work based on music notes. This series started several years ago when I began creating illustrations with music notes, and now I'm producing a series of paintings on the theme. This is an 10" x 8" acrylic painting on canvas panel mounted on wooden board and framed in a hand-made, solid oak, shadow-box frame with UV-protecting Plexiglas. The frame was built by me and my dad many years before. The canvas panel is raised off of the wooden backing board to give it a floating effect. The framed work is 13" x 17" x 2.5". I have been experimenting with using builder's chalk lines on my canvases. I'm the son of a carpenter, and I don't know of any other artist using chalk lines in this way so it seemed like something fun to experiment with. In this painting the red horizontal lines were formed by snapping a red chalk line across the wet surface of the painting which had been coated in either a spray glue or acrylic medium. The red and gold note vibrates off the abstract blue background. -- Terry Smith, 28 Feb 2016 Update: Sold to a collector.

  • The Last Note painting by Terry Smith, 2015

    The Last Note

    The Last Note is part of a body of work that I'm creating based on music notes. This series started several years ago when I began creating illustrations with music notes, and now I'm producing a series of paintings on the theme. This is an 8" x 10" acrylic painting on canvas panel mounted on wooden board and framed in a hand-made, solid oak, shadow-box frame with UV-protecting Plexiglas. The frame was built by me and my dad many years before. The canvas panel is raised off of the wooden backing board to give it a floating effect. The framed work is 13" x 17" x 2.5". I have been experimenting with using builder's chalk lines on my canvases. I'm the son of a carpenter, and I don't know of any other artist using chalk lines in this way so it seemed like something fun to experiment with. In this painting the red horizontal line was formed by snapping a red chalk line across the wet surface of the painting which had been coated in either a spray glue or acrylic medium. The red note is very textured and vibrates off the abstract blue background. -- Terry Smith, 15 Dec 2015 Update: Sold to a collector.
