I often find resources for my paintings after I’m actually done them. Here is a perfect example. I listen to Down by the Weeping Willow by Daniel, Fred and Julie now and then but didn’t think about it (consciously) when sketching up “Sleeping Willow”. It also didn’t play while I was painting. It’s been a few weeks since I’ve heard it. I just started singing it today and made the connection.
The painting is not a depiction of the song as you will find out if you listen to it, but sleeping by a weeping willow is the image that stuck… I should also note the woman in my painting is not dead but sleeping. Still, I thought the connection between image and song interesting enough to share. Enjoy the creepy, sad, but pretty tune.
