New Painting; For Rick Wright

"The Great Gig in the Sky"
Acrylic on 24x18" canvasboard
Irridescent white & gloss varnish in this painting, which make the moon, some stars & the light blue strip of sky behind the Celtic Cross shine when the light hits them a certain way.

Effects like that are great in person, an absolute devil to reproduce. Look at all the trouble trying to do justice to Mark Rothko.

Come to think of it, that painting reminds me of Rothko crossed with Magritte. Trippy, meditative and cool...

Wow. You did it again. I love the blues and greens. And symbolism here, too. Thoughtful. I like.

Very cool tribute.

Also reminds me of Led Zep doing "In My Time of Dying"

Lauren said...

Wow...that is so beautiful!

Lana Gramlich said...

Thanks, everyone. This actually started out as a pretty directionless piece before Rick passed away. It only got its "purpose" after the fact.

Virtual Voyage said...

Nice tribute. Can imagine the effect of the shimmery light of the gloss.

Charles Gramlich said...

that irridescent stuff is amazing in person. Cool painting, mi amora.

Lana Gramlich said...

Julie & Charles; Thanks much. :)

WOW! Lana, It's beautiful!
Rick woulda loved it.
I sat around all yesterday playing CD's and having a solo Floyd fest in memory of Rick. Sure wish I could do something like your painting but I'm just an onlooker.
But, Hey Girl! You have got some MAD SKILLS with the paint. Keep it up.

Absolutely Fabulous!

minus273 & miladysa; Thanks much. :)

As a romantic I seem to hear or see more than the band is playing,
but oh how we are mesmerized by that invisible star! Or moon?

Scares he crap out of us, actually.

My non-sequitur for the day.

I love playing with iridescent paint and it photographs terribly!

I love the simplicity of your paintings. I bet this would be something live....

Dave Coulter said...

It was sad to hear that he'd passed on, but he made millions of people happy with his music. All in all a pretty good run, I'd say.

Lana Gramlich said...

ivan; Floyd scares me to life, y'know? My hopes for a reunion are finished, of course. Ah well...

michelle; Next time I may do a little video, showing the "special" effects. As far as we've come technologically, we're still a long way from the complexity of the human eye.

dave; Yes...he was just so young, relatively speaking. It all happened so fast...

Absolutely stunning and a winner, Lana!!! Just gorgeous. I love the colors and tones and the graphic design.

Hugs, JJ

Avery DeBow said...

Very nice. And great title!

Lana Gramlich said...

jj & avery; Thank you. :)

Bird said...

Ah, a great musician and an amazing track. It's lovely that you did a tribute. GREAT colours.

Lana Gramlich said...

bird; Thank you kindly. A shame to lose such a talent. <:(

Punam said...

Your paintings are very beautiful. Esp this one.. the way the colors change from green to blue to grey is just amazing.

Lana Gramlich said...

punam; Thank you! I appreciate the input. :) Glad you like my work.

Larry said...

That is beautiful Lana-it gives me that magical feeling that I get when I look up at a clear night sky with a sense of wonder.-I like the blend of colors between the different layers.

Lana Gramlich said...

larry; Thanks. Ironically, I'd started the background without much direction as what I was going to do with it. The sad news of Rick's passing was enough to point me in the right direction.
