There There

16″ x 20″ Acrylic on canvas

I really love this painting. It seems a bit impressionistic to me, not my typical style, but something I want to play with again!

Dark places are alluring to me. I also really love Radiohead and their song “There There” and the lyrics are surprisingly appropriate for the mood the painting sets.

In pitch dark
I go walking in your landscape
Broken branches
Trip me as I speak
Just ’cause you feel it
Doesn’t mean it’s there
Just ’cause you feel it
Doesn’t mean it’s there
There’s always a siren
Singing you to shipwreck
(Don’t reach out, don’t reach out
Don’t reach out, don’t reach out)
Steer away from these rocks
We’d be a walking disaster
(Don’t reach out, don’t reach out
Don’t reach out, don’t reach out)
Just ’cause you feel it
Doesn’t mean it’s there
(Someone on your shoulder
Someone on your shoulder)
Just ’cause you feel it
Doesn’t mean it’s there
(Someone on your shoulder
Someone on your shoulder)
There there
Why so green and lonely?
And lonely, and lonely?
Heaven sent you to me
To me, to me?
We are accidents waiting
Waiting to happen
We are accidents waiting
Waiting to happen

  1. Love the depth and open-to-interpretiveness of this one, Tiffany! My first memory impression this brought to me was being young in the 60s and going to the converted warehouses in downtown Houston along Buffalo Bayou, going inside and being flooded with colors and sound. Good memories πŸ™‚ Yes! You should try more impressionist paintings, see if they continue to appeal to you πŸ™‚

  2. Thank you Felipe! And thank you for sharing your memories, I always wished I was born just a little earlier so I was a teenager in the ’60s, I’m sure I would have enjoyed the era!
