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."
