The sixth installment of the miniseries is a little
different than the past few. I didn’t do this painting,
but it was the inspiration for the song, Four Panes.
My friend Nathan sent me a link to a Pinterest board
full of art, and I chose this one. It was probably the
least likely to be used. I mean look at it. It’s a painting
of old window panes. The painting and I had a staring
contest, and honestly, I think I won because I got what
I wanted from it. A song. As my mind went blank from
staring too long, it began to fill with a story. One that
was partially inspired by the home I grew up in, and
partially a made up tale. Even the made up parts
held truth within my own heart though. Four Panes
is one of my personal favorites from the album.
