'Wide Awake' undated by UrartadKonst 'Wide Awake' undated by UrartadKonst
"Well sitting in a bar alone
where no-one knows your name
is like laying in a graveyard
wide awake
You're scared that if you cough or yawn
you might wake up the dead
So pretend to read a paper
or just drink instead"

The Beautiful South 'Liar's Bar'

I painted this on a brown used giftwrapping paper , for some forgotten mysterious reason. A really uplifting and life-affirming image.

This reminds me of The Piano Man by Billy Joel. I never liked him, but I enjoy that song.

Billy Joel? I have some faint recollection from the eighties? I'll look up that song.

Just the lyrics are very appropriate, I think.
I dunno, back when I listened to NIN and the such I hated Billy Joel's guts, though, so I can't guarantee you'd like the song.

I'll still try it though because I got interested when you mentioned it. For me the painting really is about the Beautiful South song quoted in the comment; I think that particular band is godlike, but I want to hear Billy Joel's lyrics as well...

The line divide between the bottle with its facial illusion and the drinker opens a lot of conjecture. Interesting piece. Cheers! :beer:
