Paula's masterful brushwork and keen understanding of Stravinsky's musical narrative come together, offering viewers a captivating visual experience. Each stroke resonates with the pulsating rhythms of the music, inviting the audience to immerse themselves in the transfiguration of color and form. "Spring Rounds II" stands as a testament to Paula Arciniega's ability to translate the evocative power of music into a vibrant visual language, where each stroke contributes to the harmonious dance between sound and color.
