Last night I went to see Train in concert. It was so much fun! I took a selfie during the night and used that photo as reference for this work which has resulted not in an exact likeness but reflective of an essence that I'm happy to see. I've always been a fan of music with strong story-telling lyrics and I enjoy immensely how the stories that Train tell through their songs infuse bits and pieces of pop culture in cute and sometimes hilarious ways.
I also had the pleasure of meeting lead singer, Patrick Monahan, who was such a lovely, down-to-earth person ... who so generously complimented my necklace with a kind of inquisitiveness ... which made me feel like ... like ... I had drops of Jupiter in my hair and that I could sail across the sun ...
DROPS OF JUPITER
Now that she's back in the atmosphere
With drops of Jupiter in her hair, hey, hey, hey
She acts like summer and walks like rain
Reminds me that there's a time to change, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, heySince the return from her stay on the moon
She listens like spring and she talks like June, hey, hey, hey
But tell me, did you sail across the sun?
Did you make it to the Milky Way to see the lights all faded
And that heaven is overrated?
