When I was like 7, I heard and fell in love with I Am The Walrus by The Beatles. I remember listening to the radio with my old-school cassette recorder, when a song I liked came on, I quickly hit record and listened very quietly until the end of the song. Push stop, rewind and hope it turned out. It was usually a terrible recording, but that was the way it was.
Anyway, I recorded I Am The Walrus, and played it a thousand times before the tape eventually broke. Thing is, I had no idea who sang the song. I don’t know how long it was until I stumbled across the song while listening to my parents albums, I was shocked and delighted to learn it was the Beatles!
From there on out, I have always been drawn to the weird, the different, the obscure, the abstract. This is true of my taste in music, men, and my art.
If you are wondering what this story has to do with Blue Jay Way the painting, absolutely nothing. It just made me think about The Beatles and how they were perhaps, my first introduction to abstract art!?
