Purple Haze

Purple Haze


"Purple Haze" by Jimi Hendrix is thought to be about psychedelics but he once explained that the song was inspired by a dream he had when he was walking under the sea.


This painting explores what happens when the earth and the sky meet; when ethereal clouds kiss a rugged landscape.


The painting process evokes a similar meeting of opposites. You need a foundational understanding of what the paint, the brushes, the canvas or panel, all contribute. But the act of painting introduces unknown actions and feelings. You just go with the flow, hoping there's some ground under your feet.


It's a dance of fluidity and permanence. A sense of tranquility and uncertainty.


This painting invites you to lose yourself in your own dream, or daydream; to evoke emotions and inspire reflection.


'Scuse me while I kiss the sky.
