I discovered Van Morrison's music late on. I wish I'd heard it many years back. For one, the lyrics are great. Two, the musicians he has in his band are brilliant. Three, it is good music to have playing when I'm painting. It's good music to work to, as it doesn't interfere with my thoughts but encourages me to work forward. So... this picture is dedicated to poetry in music and poetic musicians.
The picture is an acrylic on stretched canvas. I worked with thin paint at first ... watered down a great deal so it would work into the canvas. Then I built up layers of colour. I used some Golden gold to mix in with the other pigments to create a faint sparkle (like moon light). The composition is, to some extent, structured on a grid which gives the picture some formality.
