Since November is still two weeks away, I think we might take a real challenge. When I was 14 our school art teacher (an accomplished painter) gave us unusual homework - to paint a favourite song. My mind just couldn't understand it at the begining, but after a while, I realised that every time I listened to music, I had tons of images in my mind, just like a video-clip. Because I wanted to show off, I chose I classical piece (Swan Lake was the only one I knew well at the time) and the result was a lake landscape with a sur-realist twist. I think we can do it. Just put our minds to work and I bet we will have some very impressive results.

Exactly, ncwren! I was thinking exactly at Vivaldi's seasons! So great minds do think alike :))
