Sentimental Journey

Just listed in my Etsy Store. I had a lot of fun painting & creating this Angel! She is painted on Side 2 Of a mint condition 12" vinyl LP record. "Sentimental Journey" is the 4th song on Side 2 of "Aurthur Murray's Dance Music. The song on the label was left untouched and shows through her hair and was the inspiration for this piece.

The 2 different expressions on each side of the Angel's face give her unique character & evokes emotion. She is bright & cheerful or somber & reflective. The moon represents a journey through time. The pretty flower in her hair represents the bright side of life & eternal optimism.

I love her and the colors are so lush!!! She, or what she stands for, as you describe, sounds like an angel for me right now! I am Gemini and that is the Twins, so I have 2 sides to me..also I am turning 50 on Memorial Day this year! Awesome work! I wish I was that brave with color and form as you are. I am in a painting class right now and hoping to unleash that!
Xo, SuZi

The way the songs on this album inspired your work, and the meaning behind your painting makes it that much more inspirational. I love your thought process.
