This painting featuring Jimi Hendrix and two of his quotes is one of the larger acrylic paintings I have ever created. It stands over 6' tall by 36" wide. This is part of the new series I am creating of Rock and Roll legends. The first was John Lennon previously posted here. For me the line "Excuse Me While I Kiss The Sky" fits the transcendental nature of Jimi's music and if you look at this painting you almost know the note and the song that this visual I created captures. I look forward to creating more of this series when time allows.
The fondest memories most people have are not always about the “big event” but the normal everyday experiences that lead up to it. As an artist my intent is to visually capture a memory and convey it. A walk, a place, a person a workplace, a gift, a meal, all little things but they are part of every ones personal life mosaic.
Each piece I produce incorporates a unique story behind its creation and each story is connected to other stories waiting to be shared and painted. That is why a lot of my work involves a series of pieces that are connected. As they are produced they unfold to tell a bigger story.
These stories are the very essence of what I paint and they continue to drive me to want to paint art that connects emotionally.
To have an impact the piece should evoke a memory, an emotion something to be lived over every time you view the art. If my work can do this than I know it is a success and a meaningful piece.
