Cold Burn to Nirvana? Rock Art Painting No.8 is Something Different (Photo’s Included)

Cold Burn Nirvana by Cherie Roe Dirksen


It’s been a while since I finished the latest edition to my rock art series (if you don’t know what this is, please take a look at this tantalizing, musical artscape journey so far by clicking HERE: pictures, blogs, line up — the whole toot!).

Why has it taken me so long to reveal? God only knows.

All I can tell you is that this one was unusual and what came up was totally different to all my previous paintings in this series.

But enough banter — next week I’ll fill you in on the emotional journey (what I felt and what came up when I was painting this). It’s got me baffled but I think I’m ready to share it now.

Cold Burn is Born!

For now, let me introduce you to ‘Cold Burn’. This was painted to the music of those grunge trailblazers, Nirvana. Below is the start to finish photographic painting process.













And finally, the finished painting!

Thank you for taking the Nirvana journey with me :)

Please ‘follow this blog’ to stay tuned to the follow up blog (feelings/inspiration/motive behind the music/painting) next week. I promise you it’s going to be interesting if not a little freaky!
