So, I finished the Christmas present commission, 3-song (Gone Away, In the End, and Angels Fall) interpretive piece this morning.I hope I don’t get skipped out.
Anyway, it’s acrylic and sharpie on 22”x28” canvas.
I didn’t want to go literal with it, so I did the single wing falling into a hellish hand brought together with the line from “In the End”, “I put my trust in you.” To bring the piece together.
On doing research on “Going Away”, I found out the meaning’s about feeling lost, which, knowing more about the intended forever-home, I can see the relation to the song, so the doomed wing falling to hell has significance and there seems to be a lost of trust, which’s a running theme, whether overt or not. Interesting and sad since the forever-home’s a 13-year-old.
Every piece touches me the way I hope it touches its intended forever-home. I try to get in their heads to pull out their feelings or to bring a catharsis for said feelings.
At any rate, I’m grateful for the opportunity.
For our artist readers, no matter writer, artist, singer, whatever, use your gifts to help the world…and…
