Well, I’m back to the heavy-handedness (and how*)!

This painting has been in the works in some capacity pretty much ever since I heard John Mayer’s ‘Neon (I always associate his music with colour and pattern  (Don’t ask.)).Then I came across the always-amazing Leonid Afremov’s gallery and it occurred to me that his style and use of  colour would be perfect to capture the feel of the song.

Add some Chemical – X and you have:

She’s always buzzing just like
Neon, neon
Who knows how long
She can go before she burns away...”

*There is literally a whole second layer of the same painting beneath the one you see. Well, not the same; it turned into a murky mess, so I redid it all. I’m a true madman, I really am.
