Lily Marlene With Half Falling

1,100.00

27.5” x 20” x 1.5” oil on wood, mounted on wood

This painting was created in response to an incident that happened while traveling Central Europe. I had joined a wonderfully quirky group of individuals on tour through Germany; a pianist, a singer and their manager. They embodied the 1930’s style and vocals of Marlene Dietrich and Zarah Leander.

On the way to the next gig, in another charming town, we stopped for lunch. Sitting outside on a beautiful sunny afternoon, under the bistro umbrella, we talked about the previous night’s performance. There was a brief moment of silence with huge smiles. Until, half a bird hits the umbrella in a startling base-tone thump and then continues to the pavement.

What is the Universe trying to say? Why the sacrificial bird? There were no clouds, no wind, no airplane, nothing up above except blue sky. WTF?
