The sixth painting in my 1989 Collection is number 3 on the album: Style

This painting is about a love that exists inside a glass bottle of infinite time, where the ocean never ends, the skies are forever blue, and the stories you’ve rooted there are deep enough to last lifetimes. Danger might loom outside, red flags wave wildly on the horizon, but the canopy of branches that cork your world seem enough to keep you sailing on forever. This big ship is a bond that never goes out of style.

The fifth painting in my 1989 Collection is number 1 on the album: Welcome to New York

This painting is about more than just New York City. It’s about New York as a state of mind. The song references moving to the big city to become who you always dreamed, and being free to shine bright. I wanted this painting to have a childlike shadow-box effect that reminds you the world is a stage, and you can be the main character in your own story. New York as a metaphor means you don’t hold back, you become your best possible self and you light up the night.

The fourth painting in my 1989 Collection is number 10 on the album: How You Get the Girl

The imagery in this piece has personal significance for me, but I’m confident the message is universal. This song and this painting is about the gestures of courtship. It’s about the way you feel when you feel like you would do anything to prove your magnetism and devotion. How you get the girl: you go and get the moon and stars, all the constellations, the infinite blue night, and you bring them to her. The night is as blue as you have been without her, and her face is the moon. When the moon is gone, the night is a terrifying abyss. But when the moon waxes, the night seems to smile again.

The third painting in my 1989 Collection is number 6 on the album: Shake It Off 

This painting is about more than a catchy tune to rise above rumors, drama or perceived insults. It’s about harnessing an inner light that not only allows you to rise above a world of petty drama, but creates more light in the process. When I worry that people are saying unkind things about me, or that my true intentions and good nature have been misunderstood, I try to make sure I’m not bristling against the insults and letting them make me feel smaller, but instead flapping my wings and letting glittery shiny pieces of stardust frost the sky from my soaring. I try to shake it off in a way that empowers others to do the same, by shining bright.

The second painting in my 1989 Collection is number 9 on the album: Wildest Dreams 

This piece is about how the memories of a past relationship can follow you around, and tempt you back with delicate strings that pull on you somewhere deep. The fires that first made the flame are the ones that will destroy you if you stay too long in the landscape of dreams. “You see me in hindsight tangled up with you all night, burn it down. Someday when you leave me, I bet these memories follow you around.” It’s all there in the song. When I painted the final flame, I knew it captured the dichotomy of heartache and allure I was going for.
