'Scuse me while I kiss the sky...
16" x 20" x 1" mixed media on wood panel
Purple haze all in my brain
Lately things just don't seem the same
Actin' funny, but I don't know why
'Scuse me while I kiss the sky
Purple haze all around
Don't know if I'm comin' up or down
Am I happy or in misery?
Whatever it is that girl put a spell on me
Purple haze all in my eyes
Don't know if it's day or night
You got me blowin', blowin' my mind
Is it tomorrow, or just the end of time?
- Jimi Hendrix (1942 - 1970)
I've been hearing this song in my head, on the radio, and from Jol's guitar for weeks now, and it inspired me to do this painting. It's not quite finished, but if you look closely, you might spy the song lyrics in the pattern of her dress, along with a few other "hidden" things.
