"Believe it or not, that’s progress"
I tend to identify Peyton with her art. Even if music had such a huge impact in her life and then in her career.
I just think it’s a combination of the two that makes who Peyton is as a character. Music is a form of art. They’re both important and they both define her. It’s like… art comes from the inside of her, and music is something external that overwhelmes her. I don’t know if it makes any sense.
It’s like Haley with her music and her teaching, they both describe her. Music is what she is, it’s how she express what she feels. Teaching is a passion she has, she loves to see her students understand a subject and being there to help them.
Or if you think about Lucas and writing/literature and basketball. They both definitely make you think about Lucas. But again, with his writing or with the quotes, Lucas express himself. He loves to play basketball because of how the sport makes him feel.

day 2 - favorite relationship
Peyton + her art"I want to draw something that means something to someone. You know, I want to draw blind faith or a fading summer or… just a moment of clarity. It’s like when you go and you see a really great band live for the first time, you know, and nobody’s saying it but everybody’s thinking it — "We have something to believe in again." I want to draw that feeling. But, I can’t. And if I can’t be great at it then I don’t want to ruin it. It’s too important to me."
I loved Jess’s choice of showing Peyton’s relationship with music. It’s not a mystery that I love Peyton with Lucas and her friendship with Brooke. So I chose to do something different - her art. Because it’s what made her so special to me. The way she portrayed her feelings in her art. The way her whole bedroom was a piece of art.
Peyton is a unique character in my opinion, and her art is what makes her so “different” and extraordinary in my eyes. I could feel what she felt, her art always gave me something.
I also adore how much what she creates it’s important to her. She wants for her art to have a meaning, to give emotion to someone else, otherwise there’s no point.
