Jimi Hendrix Vibes, oil painting in progress, Tiffany Davis-Rustam

Don’t you just dig Jimi Hendrix, and the way he makes his magic voodoo guitar sing?

I’ve been experimenting with synesthesia lately, which in painting can be interpreted as SEEing sounds or vibration. For this painting, I started drawing to Jimi’s music with my eyes closed, and channeled the sound through my pencil. It was so fun and brings me an even deeper appreciation of his music!

I’ve continued to listen to Jimi as I paint this canvas, and here you can see how the soulful complexity of his music just keeps pushing me to honor his legacy in an even more detailed way.

Stay tuned for more…. it’s still far from finished!
