Love is Touching Souls

Original - 24x36"

This is one of my newer pieces, inspired by love.. Adoring, desiring, willing to
The lyrics are written on the image, and phrases on border.
She's in the blue TV screen light...
Part of my newer series of "Emotional Influences" An image, an emotion, a song... inspired by
"A Case of You"-

Lyrics by Joni Mitchell:

"Just before our love got lost you said
I am as constant as a northern star
And I said, constantly in the darkness
Where's that at?
If you want me I'll be in the bar

On the back of a carton coaster
In the blue TV screen light
I drew a map of Canada
Oh Canada
With your face sketched on it twice

Oh you're in my blood like holy wine
You taste so bitter and so sweet
Oh I could drink a case of you darling
And I would still be on my feet
Oh I would still be on my feet

Oh I am a lonely painter
I live in a box of paints
I'm frightened by the devil
And I'm drawn to those ones that ain't afraid

I remember that time that you told me, you said
Love is touching souls
Surely you touched mine
Cause part of you pours out of me
In these lines from time to time..."

[there's more] listen here:

Remember falling in love? Me too, and I hope you enjoy this original work that captures that emotion...forever.

Another emotion - feeling not so confident in love is expressed in this piece:

 "I feel unsteady, where's my love?"

This image reflects that sinking feeling when you're not sure about your lover... where they are, what they're doing... and the depths of that emotion...fear, longing, feeling unsteady. Inspired by "Lilac Wine," performed by Katie Melua. You can hear that here. This piece is huge - 36x48" Acrylic, Ink, Tissue & Junk Mail on Canvas.
