Tangled Up (in blue)

November 5, 2019

Like it was written in my soul
From me to you
Tangled up in blue

Bob Dylan, Tangled Up in Blue

 

The first time I heard these lyrics was through the foam padding of my headphones attached to a bright yellow walkman.  I loved having music in my ears as I trudged through the snow in college. 

 

This was "back in the day" no computer, no cell phone, so my only vision of Bob Dylan was seeing him on a stage in concert.  There is no denying the power and beauty of his lyrics.  It ignites a creative spirit in me.  He is daring and poetic and an artist to the core - something I admire deeply.

 

This portrait is made entirely from fabric including - cotton canvas with colored pencil, an old bed sheet and cloth scraps that have been dyed and stitched together with love.

 

I have had so many comments on this image, I decided to give a free pdf print away.  To download the print >>> add your email to my list here  link will open in a new window.
