S_V_H Please Remember Me Final image

One canvas panel 36″ by about 24″ high

Please Remember Me, is finished and is the first artwork where I did not adjust the music to balance with the size of the canvas.  I let the music flow where it needed to go and that makes  this little work a pivot point for what will come next.  This painting along with its partial twin,  I’m Already There, are each 36 inches in length. This size makes it easier to find the needed wall space to get this art out in public view.  To help that happen I have applied for two local art shows, and I am working on a proposal for a local art gallery.  The art of marketing this art is as important as the art.  You can’t find an audience for paintings stacked away from sight.

Throughout this project I have kept the color range close together, working in shades of blue, and greens. In this final image I have decided to throw in some miscellaneous colors that probably have nothing to do with the theme of this artwork.  I added these little color pieces, similar as you saw in Satisfaction,  for a number of reasons.  I like using the little odds-and-ends pieces of wood in bright colors, here-and-there on an artwork to break up the work and add some interest.  I also think of these extra wood pieces as fragments of the music flowing around the painting. When listening to music there are a lot of sounds that echo, that blend, or taper off,  and that is what these little wood add-on pieces are there to represent.  It all adds up to making an artwork fun to look at.
