Bach In Heaven by jeighdeigh Bach In Heaven by jeighdeigh
Oil on canvas, 2007. About 48" by 36".

UPDATE (3/23/2014): Holey Moley! (Does anyone say that anymore?) A Daily Deviation! My most fervent thanks to Cher of ArtByCher for suggesting this work. And big thanks to everyone who has commented. I'll get around to thanking you, one by one, presently. Now I'm going to go have a beer, or six.

UPDATE (3/24/2014): I'm still recovering from the response that this painting got. Wow.

I've tried to respond to all the comments, but there's no way I can respond to all the people who Favorited it, or who added it to their collections. So, a global Thanks! to those people.

I wish you all a wonderful, creative, exhilarating, fruitful Spring, whether you are alone, grappling with your chosen medium, or playing, or working, or spending sweet hours with those you love.

Really dig the colours. Great sense of space. You've got aerial perspective nailed. Also love the lit and shady parts of the tree. Works nicely with the lighting on the clouds.

Bach has created heaven for us when he composed his genius music, and this painting is absolutely amazing. Heaven becomes more beautiful while Bach is there :)

I just saw your work for the first time and I'm speechless. You put so much work and creativity in what you're doing, in every detail, this is amazing. But this painting is one of the most moving arts I've ever seen, even if I don't listen to Bach really often. This is just beautiful. Can't wait to see more!

Thank you, so very much. Your good words about this piece are deeply appreciated. I'm afraid that I must tell you, however, that I'm not likely to do many more paintings like this one. I've had to move to smaller pieces in pen & ink & watercolor. They sell. And besides, pen and ink has always been my favorite medium. But there's a lot of good stuff here that I've done that way. Again -- thank you!

This is so Beautiful! You can hear his music just watching this, the landscape says everything about his music. When the angels sing to God they sing Bach.

Another wonderful piece. I'm less familiar with Bach, especially his organ pieces, I'm more of a Tchaikovsky-person.
No
netheless I love this piece and I sure wouldn't mind listening to him, over there in the open Air (on the G string). :-)
I really like the technique u use so well, not to mention the lovely colors. But also the message behind it, that his somewhere up there, still doing what he loved the most. So basically how Heaven must look like for him... and that's a beautiful thing. Or that's how I see it. :D
Thank you for sharing it here!
