This guy is insanely good…this ones called Bitches Brew.

Musical Instruments

the detail in this painting is amazingly good. i just recently realized that there were music notes in the clouds and sky…. every living thing had something to do with a musical instrument.

 

The trumpeting of the elephants is a sound of rejoicing that erupts with the appearance of their king, their master. The elephants call other animals and birds to celebrate, with the occasion being life itself! Voices of the creatures obedient to the challenge blend into the polyphonic oratorio of joy and exultation that swells until it resonates throughout the heavens. It is fitting that elephants should lead this symphony. When the world was young, the elephant had strength and power over all. He also embodied wisdom, longevity, loyalty, tolerance, and compassion. Sound is the path into the cosmos, where the individual timbres and voices are as important as the entire universal orchestra. In Greek tradition, a lyre made from antelope horns was the instrument of Apollo, the god of prophecy and music. Playing it, Orpheus tamed wild animals, and charmed trees and mountains. According to Hindu doctrine, when Krishna played the flute, the cosmos started to move and creation of the world began.


Cracked Egg….

i feel that when you look at a certain piece of art, it moves you in a certain way. whether its good or bad who knows but it gives you feeling and opens a world that, until then might have been closed.

When i look at the sunrise in the mornings, i always get reminded of this painting… i cant tell if its a sunset or sunrise, but i like to believe the latter. Either way this painting speaks very loud to me…

The egg symbolizes the rising Sun and the beginning of life. In many myths about the creation of the world, a cosmic egg is laid by a giant bird in a formless, ancient ocean. The egg splits into two and the sky and the earth appear from the halves of it, while the sun is seen in the yolk. You can see in the picture that the newborn Sun still hasn’t taken its final shape yet. Shreds of primary matter continue to stream from the burning sphere rising over the ocean. According to Polynesian myth, the Hawaiian Islands were born from such an egg

In common parlance, “Psychedelic Painting Art” refers above all to the art scene of the counterculture in the 1960s. Visual art was a counterpart to the era’s psychedelic rock music and the free-spirited subculture.
