My Body Is My Queen

dav

My Body Is My Queen (work in progress) – oil on canvas.

She speaks when I don’t listen

She sees me when I’m lost

She’s not always forgiving

Because she pays the cost

I only know I love her

Cause she’s my only one

I’m sorry for the damage

That cannot be undone

She tells me everything

That I need to know

If I don’t listen good

In sickness it will show

There’s nothing in between

My body never lies to me

My body is my queen

My ruler, my guide, everything

My body is my queen

My everything.

COMMISSIONED WORK – BRITPOP!

Here is one of my latest commissioned pieces titled ‘Parklife’.

PARKLIFE

My friend Kirsty asked me  to create an original painting with a ‘Britpop’ theme for a charity event she is organizing soon. She’s hosting a 90’s & Britpop night at The Booth Hall in Hereford. The painting will be auctioned off on the night along with lots of other cool britpop goodies. All profits for the evening go to St Michael’s Hospice.

I didn’t want to do the obvious thing for this brief, for example, a painting of a mod target with a guitar in the middle, or a portrait of Liam Gallagher. No! Instead, i decided to take inspiration from a britpop classic. Plus, I’ve never painted a pigeon before and thought it was rather fun coupled up with the opening lyrics to Parklife. This painting was completed quickly in 4 and a half hours.

I really like the idea of illustrating song lyrics! This has given me a cool idea for another possible, themed exhibition. Yay.
