The Collection that Stood the Test of Time

After many moons, I have picked up paint brush and spray can and started painting no. 6 of my Rock Art Series (there are going to be 10 painting all told).

If you want to recap on the grand adventure of subliminal painting to my favourite musicians of all time, please CLICK HERE.

I think I first promised myself that I would have this series done by June 2013 — fat laugh that was!  Then the next D-date was December 2013 — another dashed hope.

Art on Wizards Time 

Just like Gandalf (who proclaimed that a wizard is never late and always arrives exactly when he intends to), I am going to let these paintings emerge in their own divine time (as long as it’s within my lifetime!).

But, at least I can say I am more than half way now!

Yippeeeeeee…so, without further ado — painting no. 6 was produced by listening to the melodious and mesmerizing Templeton (and, no, I’m not just saying that because he’s my husband — go listen and decide for yourself).

You can visit his aural delights here: TempletonUniverse.

Templeton Rocks the Canvas

I am just going to be showing you snippets of the painting because Wednesday’s blog is going to be the start-to-finish photographic process and the grand reveal — so do stay tuned (or follow this blog if you aren’t already) :D.

So, here is a little taste just to whet your appetite:

1 2 3 4

Well, I hope you are intrigued.

5Until next week when I get out of the way of the focal point of the painting (see photo on your right where I have cunningly concealed the weirdest thing I have painted to date that has consequently unearthed a lot of Egyptian myth?  Very titillating stuff indeed!  I promise to reveal all) — you’ll have to try to put the pieces together and see what on earth (or, perhaps, not on earth) has planted itself onto my canvas.

Oh, the mystery of it all!  All will be revealed soon though, so hang onto those knickers!!!

Adieu, my patient amigos…

What The Beatles Look Like From the End of my Paintbrush

Let’s get on with the big reveal…

Whimsical, Colourful, Bright and Vibrant

The title just encapsulates the outcome of this project.  It is just dripping with juicy hues, abstract sensations and psychedelic fantasy.  But what would you expect from a painting inspired purely by listening to the Beatles — non-stop?

I really felt quite taken back to my youth with this one (no, not quite to the swinging ’60’s — I’m a 70’s baby).  There was just so much reminiscence going on with this painting that a bit of child-like play surfaced in the making of this bold artwork.

Compared to the Last

When I put the Radiohead painting up next to this one, I really get a sense of what I’m trying to achieve with this Rock Art project.  They couldn’t be more different!

I am going to have a pictorial comparison at the end of this blog for all you curious types.  Please feel free to share your views.

Without Much Ado…

Here is the final product:

Here is that comparison between the Radiohead painting and The Beatles one:

    

As you can well see, the difference is quite apparent.  So there really is something in this whole experiment with painting to different types of music.  My curiosity is peaked and I am now really looking forward to doing the rest of this series.

Because Muse has just released their 6th album (2nd law), they are going to be next in line — can’t wait to see what cosmic waves are going to come out of my paint pots this time.

The Title — Help!

Before I sign off, I haven’t come up with a title for this yet.  I was wondering if perhaps you could contribute any suggestions you may have that would befit this painting — the title needs to sum it all up.

Please leave your suggestions in the comment section below.  Any feedback, critique or just general banter are welcome!

UPDATE:  The title is ‘Metamorphic Dilatation’ (the process of changing and expanding)

Albums that I listened to in the Making of This:

Rubber Soul

Magical Mystery Tour

Abbey Road

Sgt. Pepper

Help!

Revolver

My husband told me that it’s John’s birthday soon (9 October)…so,

‘Happy Birthday, John’ — missed but never forgotten, your music lives on in all of us!
