A Nick Cave Song

A Nick Cave Song
10x12inches,acrylic on canvas, framed
at the Press Club in April/May
What I'm trying to get with this series is the feeling of an artists work, I want to create images that manifest the work of musicians that I love listening to. These are not interpretations of lyrics, they're ideas based on the artist's lyrical work and how I feel when I hear them.
I tried to do a series (see Tom Waits Project) that was literal interpretations of song lyrics, but I got bored, this is a far better route for a "diarist" painter like myself. Perhaps that only diarist painter you've ever heard of.
Anyways, this painting will probably inspire a legion of copies so once again we place our trusty spoiler card on it.
