"Broken Soul"

"Broken Soul"
14 x 11, oil

"I'm a broken soul, I'm an open book, with many torn out pages."

Thanks to my dear friend Susan for introducing the song to me through her art.  I listened to it and thought, this is the way songs should be written... to make you feel.  At least that's the songs I'm most drawn to.  Sure you got the ones that have a great beat and catchy phrases.  But the ones that make you stop and think about your life and how you can make it better... that's the music for me.  In the same way, that's the art for me, and that's the art I want to produce.  The song is Trent Dabbs and Ruby Amanfu "Turn Our Eyes Away."
