Song in Green Sharp Major by Starsong-Studio Song in Green Sharp Major by Starsong-Studio
Ok, try this again - slightly better photo, I hope! Hard to make this look nice and crisp next to the digital artwork. Maybe that's why everyone is going digital, doh! :D = I guess this is more a painting for owning and hanging on the wall. If anyone is so inclined....

First oil painting I've finished since I did the Fantastic Journeys exhibition last year. As the title implies, it has something to do with music. Part of it came to me in a dream (doesn't happen very often, but when it does, I think there is a moral obligation to get off one's arse and paint it), and it has to do with a place, and it has to do with a person, but other than that, I really have no clue.

I don't know if it's any good, either - you tell me. One thing I do know, it came out of my own head, rather than using other people's ideas and images as crutches, as I have usually done so far. And the music connection is perhaps something I should explore more.

It also ties in with the Dylan thing - though I started this painting many months ago, long before I got onto this trip, it seemed to me that Dylan's work was the right thing to listen to while finishing this.

Oil and gold leaf on canvas.

Whatever. :D

I realy love the golden character of the water and you feel the mouvement of water and wind! The green-gold-blue is a beautiful combination. The red arrow and the little figurs are like a riddle you want to solve... You should go on, let music and water flow and make more paintings!

Well, the arrow is not a mystery, it's a quote from a painting by Paul Klee. :)

My interpretation of this lovely painting is a flow of land, water, and wind.
