Artist's Description

oil on canvas – 2×3 feet – songs… like a healing breeze

IONA , my all time favorite band, is from scotland/UK.

they are considered what would be prog celtic rock. much of their music is very etheral at first but leads into incredibly powerful movements.

IONA’s core members are world-class musicans. david bainbridge and troy donockley are amazing artists. and lead singer joanne hogg’s voice can easily be described as pristeen.

they have also produced what is my “desert island” cd (as in – if you could only take one…) it’s called open sky . i’ve probably listened to it 200 times.

this painting is not an abstraction of the CD cover per se, but it is inspired by it and the songs themselves…

Open Sky Rev. 22:2

There’s a tree in my garden
Tall and dark with countless leaves
And it whispers in the air
And it dances in the breeze
And it sways in the storm
But its hold is strong

And like the hope
That’s come my way
And turns me round
To face the sky
The rhythm of this world
The gift of life
The essence that can never die

By a river crystal bright
There’s a tree where waters flow
Leaves that fall for our healing
Scattered on the world below
Where angels dance
And the people sing… a song of hope that’s come my way
