Wrapping Up (in a giant hamster ball)
The new Top 100 has already started but a few entries from the last are still missing. Do You Realize by The Flaming Lips was the highest without a painting. The song is at #3 in the Top 100 2015/16 and is one of the few rock songs in that list. Rock stars are usually not well represented and not my my favorite to paint therefor this one is so late. The Flaming Lips and especially Wayne Coyne (recording with Miley Cyrus recently) are certainly rock stars. The portrait was done on a landscape painting that served as a demo for the "Expressive Landscape Painting" class at the Center for the Arts at Bonita Springs.
