    The painting, in delicate shades of blue and pink, consists of two wide horizontal bars accented by vertical elements. In 2014, the artist met musicologist Dr. Joachim Lucchesi, who attested that her paintings were like a score that could be played. A year later, she began her Notations series, which is based on musical ideas. According to Heerkens, rhythm is an important element present in all her works, “I think all my works contain rhythm, movement and empty spaces. Colors can act like tones in a symphony. They have a closeness to music, music for the eye. In 2020, Peter Koetsveld wrote an improvisation for clarinet for the painting Written Colours, L 33 from 2015.
