“Painting A Song” is a growing collaboration between artist Jennifer Levine and Songwriter Scott Massarsky.
It started about five years ago when Jennifer invited Scott to her studio to play his music while she painted.
She loved the energy of his music and it began to inspire the direction of her paintings. This led to discussions, planned visits, and experimentation of this process.
Words and images from the songs started finding their ways into her painting and Scott started writing songs inspired by her pieces. They now exhibit these paintings and put on shows where Scott performs his songs while Jennifer creates new paintings during the live performance.

This is our Painting a Song movie. It is a small documentary about our creative process, connection as artists, and the fun that we have creating together. We have shown it many times on large formats and it always gets a great response from the audience! Enjoy.
"To see Jennifer painting in tandem and in response to Scott's guitar isn't so much an act of taking in visual information, nor is it, precisely, like watching any kind of performance, no matter how broadly defined. It's more like you're a part of the currents of creativity itself---part melody, part spontaneity, part color, part form, part dance, and part sheer, unadulterated joy. Hypnosis has never felt so good---or so inspiring"
