Lady Grinning Soul

lady grinning soul31″ x 39″, Acrylic on canvas, 2011


This painting was totally unplanned, I put on my David Bowie cd and sat down in front of a blank canvas with no plans and just started painting. “Lady Grinning Soul” was the result. I think the David Bowie song “Lady Grinning Soul” went to my head. In the song he sings of a woman and it has many beautiful guitar solos. It`s kinda weird how a song playing in the background can guide your paintbrush. – Riel Benn (click on image to view larger version)
