A watercolor interpretation of the beautiful Sun Kil Moon song, "Blue Orchids."
A watercolor interpretation of the Sun Kil Moon song. The lyrics discuss the protagonist's emotional journey after the passing of his lover, who has died in a highway accident. This beautiful piece of music moved me to tears when I first heard it; I knew then I must paint an homage.
I hope that this painting brings comfort to those struggling with the loss of a loved one. You are not alone.
"...A burning star over long lost highways My fallen love died so young And all the gifts you gave I have them And all your love I'm still holding onto
She rides the halo of the skyline My fallen sister died so young Our last goodbye I wanted to be there To bathe the loss from your fading eyes..."
"...When she comes by every morning Brings back pink and pale blue orchids When she comes by every afternoon Piano music weeps quietly As May melts into June When she comes by every evening Lays down beside me softly breathing."
