#Wordpainting

On January 1st, I posted about something new I was

going to try in 2015, which I titled “word painting.”

In the past, I primarily used journals to house my ideas,

chord progressions, lyrics, and sketches, but I thought

it would be fun to spice things up a bit. I found a brand

of paint swatches that were about the same size as the

pages in my journal.

Down the road, I would like to find a way to display

these in more of an artistic fashion. If anyone has an

idea, I would love to know.

Four Panes

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.
