My Soundtrack

I listen to music while I paint, Its so important I have trouble completing a painting if I don't have something in the background. My Playlists change depending on what work I'm doing in the studio.

This is my soundtrack right now...

1. Fear - Sarah Mclachlan

2. Swallow - Emilie Autumn
3. Don't Stop Now - Emmy Rossum

4. Canvas - Imogen Heap ( this album is wonderful )
5. If it Kills Me - Jason Mraz

6. Unlike Me - Kate Havenvik
7. For You - Matisyahu
8. Ignorance - Paramore

9. Black - Pearl Jam
10. Gravity - Sara Bareilles
11. Make this Go On Forever - Snow Patrol

12. Give - Tori Amos

13. Save Me - Jem

14. Forever And Almost Always - Kate Voegele
Below are paintings that I think fit with this soundtrack. These songs help tell my paintings stories.

I will be putting up some videos soon...I have to get my mom to show me how to do it , Im having a little trouble with it.
Untill next time,


  1. Yaaayyy....another post! You're cooking now! I listen to some of the same stuff you do Nicole (ha, funny that, no?)


  2. Wow Nicole I love your painting style! I like Sarah Mclachln too. I have never heard of these other bands and would love to hear them. How about a "Play list?" Right now I'm going to write them down and check them out. Come on over and help me with a small answer. I'm liking that angel with the girl and tree. :)

  3. All of these are wonderful. I am wondering what your medium is and the sizes of your paintings. I am thinking oil because of the color? I am also wondering what age did you know you wanted to follow your gift?
    Thanks for the music list! I also have to have the music going and most of these are new to me!

  4. I too love to listen to music while I paint. Time just slips away then. Love your blog! Good luck!

  5. Just incredible paintings Nicole.

    I love the picture of the gravesite and your profile picture is amazing.

    You are incredible.

    Love Renee xoxo

  8. Hi Nicole! Just popped in from your mom's blog and so glad I did! You have a wonderful gift and thanks so much for sharing it with all of us! Some of the songs are familiar on your list and the ones I don't know I'll just have to check them out.
    Cheers, Roxanne

  9. Nicole, I love your work and relate to your playlist as well! Obviously, this Barton family is "une famille extraordinaire"! Continued success to you!
