Artist's Description

Acrylics on canvas.
Original size: 50 × 70 cm.

For me this was a journey using quite different colors and shades than I usually do. Most of them Golden Acrylics. Some of the colors used: Quinacridone Crimson; Yellow Ochre; Transparent Red Iron Oxide; Quinacridone / Nickel Azo Gold; Royal Talens Prussian Blue and quite a few other colors in background layers

One of those paintings that just happened.

Reached 30 favoritings (August 2012). Thanks everybody!

Inspired by the song: “Any Lethal Storm” by Timesbold

if i was a blind man i’d
dress you all in white and
keep you in a white room
turn on the bright lights and
call you invisible, call you invincible
and i’d dream of white waves on
a very lethal shore

if i was a sick man i’d
drink your bourbon and
drift into a blizzard or
any lethal storm and
emerge all windblown
cross-eyed and clothes torn
all just to see you on
another lethal shore

if i was a strong man i’d
pull your curtains
down from the heavens, past
where the sky was born
kiss you in secret
right in your locket
and then i’d pull your house down
like some very lethal storm

if i was a storm i’d
blow past your window
and linger in spirit
all around your face
and you’d never know, dear
the force that i bring
just to make your ears ring
and keep you in a haze

if i was a bird i’d
orchestrate branches
into a chorus
only you would know
crash through your window
all just to see you
all just to meet you
on another lethal shore

Here’s a very poor recording of a great performance:

And here’s the album recording. Brilliant!!
