After the concert, I thought it might be fun to look back and see just how many pieces of art I have done that had something to do with Decemberists music. Their music has inspired these specific pieces but also a lot of my art in general.
First off, here is one of the last pieces from my March solo show. It's big (18x24) and it took a while to get scanned. But it just happens to be another Decemberists inspired piece. Although the title comes from a Pulp song ("We'll Never Live Like Common People"), it started as a piece based on a combination of "The Infanta" and the line "by land, by sea, by dirigible" from "Sons and Daughters".
1. "Our Ghosts Who Wander All Of The Water" 2011 / 2. "Trillium and Ivy" 2011 / 3. "The Legionnaire's Lament" 2011 / 4. "The Rake's Song" 2009 / 5. "For My Own True Love, Lost At Sea" 2009 / 6. "Forest's Son, River's Daughter" 2009 / 7. "The Wanting Comes in Waves" 2009 / 8. "Bonny Blue Eyes" (actually a Tarkio song) 2008 / 9. "The Crane Wife" 2008 / 10. "We Both Go Down Together" 2007.
*Unrelated to the Decemberists, I finally did ACTUALLY start a new Nerd Love for this week. I have sort of been on a video game binge the last month since I hadn't played anything in a while, so it was hard to get myself back into my studio. But I did and you will see something new this week.
