    Syd!!! Very cool. He certainly helped to open my mind :)) This is a wonderful tribute!!!

  • He was such a beautiful looking man as well with wonderful penetrating eyes! Pink Floyd were much poorer after he had been fired from the group.

    He lives in a light house now doesnt he? Great work John

  • Thanks Josh! Syd died in Jan 2008 but I think you might be thinking of Mike Oldfield.

  • Hi Walt, I’m sure you’ve heard of Pink Floyd, pioneers of experimental contemporary music in the 1960s. Almost every serious artist growing up in my generation had Pink Floyd playing in the background while painting and drawing away burning the midnight oil. :)

    pink floyd?/was he a commie pinko?haha i had girls growing up then , so yes i heard them-weither i wanted to or not—your not wanting to hear this, but i painted by pbs radio when this still played classical—sorry-and worst yet- i loved italian opera too and all your kuzzin singing—i put on your kind of music when not painting—but then i am eclectic in music like my art styles have a good day there

  • I’m like you too Madvlad. My tastes in music are eclectic. My dad used to hate my music too especially The Beatles & Pink Floyd and the latter stuff but he has mellowed over the years. Now I listen to his music and love it too. Re: Frank Sinartra, Perry Como, Nat King Cole etc etc

    Wonderful tribute. Beautiful eyes. xx

  • I thought the only way to pay tribute to this legend is create an iconic type portrait using the Filmore/psychedelic look. Yes, I agree Syd’s eyes were magnificent! :))

    I have a book about Syd Barrett and can remember when See Emily Play was released (yes, I’m that old), so I really appreciate this.

  • Thank you Dave. I grew listening to Syd and Pink Floyd among other stuff while everyone was listening to fast food pop music. :))
