Blue Jay Way

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!?

  1. It’s interesting how you can hear songs on the radio and have no idea who does them. And then get a shock when you discover who did it. I remember when I Am A Walrus came out. My older bother, his friends and all my friend’s older siblings were into the Beatles, so I’ve been listening to the Beatles and a lot of rock and psychedelic groups from the 60’s since I was 6 years old. The Blue Jay Way is a fun painting.
