This artwork for the music Like a Rock will catch the eye of the aware viewer with the words, “I Believed My Dreams.” I choose those words knowing their meaning would be varied and unpredictable. I chose those words to take this artwork beyond the music. I chose those words because I dream.
By the time I get to the final image of any of these artworks, I have lost my emotions and words for the artwork. Except that when I turn away from the computer and look across the room, I do say that it surprises me. I never expected this music to turn into an artwork this good. I like the browns and blacks for they fit Bob Seger. I like the words for they take this artwork to another level. And I like this artwork, because it builds from the past but does not imitate what has come before.
Other than that, I am moving on to once again paint some Italian music, but not Vivaldi. This time the music is Operatic Pop with a cover by my favorite Disco Queen, the fabulous Donna Summer.
