- In this Interdisciplinary Still
Life Painting, "Mona Lisa," an original oil on panel,
I was inspired to create a realer than real painting image including
a violin and sheet music with my original song and melody. I
created this work in response to the idea that so much of what
we love about Art and in life, is the fact that one's own desires
are often what is reflected back in the process of admiration.
The painting of Mona Lisa has unburdened the feelings of untold
numbers of admirers. Here are some of my sentiments.
First I wrote the song and melody then I painted this artwork.
- "MONA LISA"
Mona Lisa, what secrets do you hold that
- in words can't begin
to be told.
- I believe your soulful
fires are only the reflection
- in the mirror of my
- If I suddenly could
no longer see, I'd still sing this song
- just to keep my heart
from going astray.
You spread my spirit thin in a whirlwind, and I wonder
- can I ever really fall
out of love with you.
- If I took off on a tear
down a desert roads wit's end would I
- find you waiting with
wildflowers in your hair.
I think I found the key to your ancient mystery when you
- stole my love away with
your magical Gemini eyes.
