JD Wise is an award winning painter of musical themed abstract art. He has painted over 75 paintings using the medium of acrylic on canvas. "The first real painting I did was of a trumpet. It was the instrument I played so it just flowed out of me. There were so many great and talented artists around me that I never imagined mine would amount to anything. But, in my senior year of high school my art teacher entered that painting into the prestigious Scholastic Art Contest, and after a month she came and told me I had won the category of "Modern Art" for the state of Florida.My piece went on to New York. After apologizing to all of my buddies in the art class, who were all much better than me, I asked my teacher, “How in the world did I win?” She told me it was because my work was unique."
