Ready to Hang
2nd in the "All the Musicians and Poets" series. Tribute to the late David Bowie. For me I will always remember him as the Goblin King, but there's no denying all the popular songs he created through out the years.
Most of the time when I sit down in front of a blank canvas I know my subject, but from there it varies. Some times I already know what I want the piece to say, other times I have no idea until the painting starts to develop. Some times I have a color scheme in mind, but often it just develops along with the painting.
When people ask me to describe how I created this piece or that, it usually is well I just wanted her to have depth or intrigue. I can't tell you what I did differently from a technical stand point. Quite frankly I'm not aware I'm using those brush strokes or this technique. I just paint pure and simple.
"Art for me is more about feeling than technique. Mistakes are a part of my process and can end up perfectly flawed." - Janna, Artist / Owner of Jspired Art

Describing her art as inspirations she stumbles across in her day; dreaming about how to create the grayish blue color under the clouds from the Florida sunsets on her drive home or feeling the grit of sand on the beach and realizing that is what’s missing from a portrait of a soccer players cleats kicking up dirt. She creates, to inspire others to laugh, to smile, to cry and to bring back memories of previous days. The end result is a beautiful piece that tells a story, words just cannot.
