fly away, oil and mixed media, 4×4 inches

words read: i’ll fly away

I have one of Kanye West’s cds and as a lot of hip hop/rap albums, this one has interludes between the songs. One of the interludes is a gospel song that goes something like this:

…one glad morning
when this life is over
i’ll fly away…

He sings this with such joy and I often hit repeat when this interlude comes on and sing along as I drive. I wanted to create a little painting in honor of this gospel song. You never know when or where inspiration will hit you. I mean, a hiphop album? Who would have guessed??

This photo of the painting isn’t the best. I will have to take a better one later.
