Personal work - finished a few weeks ago. Made in Open Canvas 1.1.
It was quite tricky to find the right quote for this piece; so much of the joy, confidence and optimism in the song is what I wanted to translate in the painting - it was what I wanted and needed at the time. I wanted to nail that feeling down and keep it forever!
I was inspired by so many different parts of the song, and tried to include a lot of references to it - as well as a bunch of references of my own, little post-its to the people who know me best. And inspiration works in strange ways - there are lots of things here which mutated into different things, lots of places where I let the painting inform me and lead me rather than the other way around - places where I just let go and let it become what it needed to be... and lots of little details which aren't too visible here, in this small version.
But what I hope it embodies is the same thing I think the song embodies - it's an expression of joy, and of hope, and of feeling perfectly at one with who you are, and your place in the world.
At least, that's what this painting means to me. What it means to you is up to you. (:
In the end I picked a very short quote for here, and linked to the music video below, in case you would like to listen to it.I can see everything here with my third eye
Like the blue in the sky.
