This image was created in Photoshop starting from a photo I took of a friend playing a guitar. Using multiple layers I created the background starting with a color filled layer. I created the whirlpool effect by adding clouds and then applying various filters. Duplicating the layer and selecting and removing a color from the layer I was able to then apply various layer styles including bevel and emboss. Various filters were applied to the guitar and hand image as well.

To me this image symbolizes the ability of music to help you get through all the turmoils of life.

“Purple Haze” by Jimi Hendrix

Purple haze all in my brain
Lately things just dont seem the same
Actin funny, but I dont know why
scuse me while I kiss the sky
Purple haze all around
Dont know if Im comin up or down
Am I happy or in misery?
What ever it is, that girl put a spell on me
Help me
Help me
Oh, no, no
Purple haze all in my eyes, uhh
Dont know if its day or night
You got me blowin, blowin my mind
Is it tomorrow, or just the end of time?
Help me
Ahh, yea-yeah, purple haze, yeah
Oh, no, oh
Oh, help me
Purple haze, tell me, baby, tell me
I cant go on like this
Purple haze
Youre makin me blow my mind…mama
Purple haze, n-no, nooo
Purple haze, no, its painful, baby
