FLOW: a steady, continuous stream ; a state of being completely immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of an activity.

HELL’S THE HIPPEST WAY TO GO is part of my series, FLOW. The inspiration for the painting came from one of my favourite songs, “Blue”, by Joni Mitchell. This article from Rolling Stone gives some interesting insight into the album and the song: HERE.

Blue songs are like tattoos
You know I’ve been to sea before
Crown and anchor me
Or let me sail away
Hey Blue, here is a song for you
Ink on a pin
Underneath the skin
An empty space to fill in
Well there’re so many sinking now
You’ve got to keep thinking
You can make it thru these waves
Acid, booze, and ass
Needles, guns, and grass
Lots of laughs lots of laughs
Everybody’s saying that hell’s the hippest way to go
Well I don’t think so
But I’m gonna take a look around it though
Blue I love you

Blue here is a shell for you
Inside you’ll hear a sigh
A foggy lullaby
There is your song from me
