This is a new framed print available at Chorlton Art Market in Manchester, England. A few years back I spent an idyllic, blissful summer on the allotment at the end of Cleveleys Avenue, bees buzzing, flowers blooming and baking hot sunshine. Mother Nature at her finest, just south of the city, rendered as digital art from several photographs I took as a memento for a rainy day. Swing by the Market for art and cards for Mother’s Day and Easter.
“Burning up each others’ love, burning up our lives
Tried all kinds of working out, miracle goodnight
Future full and empty knocking on my door
Ragged limbed and hungry mama
Miracle no more…
…haven’t got a death wish
I never want to say goodnight.”
Living graffiti which moves, looks like it’s sleeping and then stares at you. With this animated painting, I wanted to illustrate the immortality of David Bowie. The music stays.
