This is unusual, for this is the first and the final image for I’m Already There. If you read this earlier post about the artwork, Please Remember Me, I explain why a song, I probably would never have painted, ended up as an artwork.
Here I am with the two painting set I mentioned in the earlier blog entry:
Both of these finished artworks have a country theme, shared colors, canvas size and compliment each other when place side-by-side. That means I can close the door on my time at Best Buy with the regrettable understanding that this is the only music I every remembered from that time. Wait, I do remember one other song while I worked at Best Buy. Not sure I heard it more than a couple of times, but it was the lyrics from Money for Nothing, by Dire Straits, that I do remember:
“We gotta install microwave ovens
Custom kitchen deliveries
We gotta move these refrigerators
We gotta move these colour TV’s”
In that day that song was a great fit for me and Best Buy.
