This piece was inspired by the realization that trying new things has taught me more about myself. Moving to new places, exploring, traveling, making new friends, working new jobs…

This painting gets its name from one of my favorite Foster The People songs, “Pseudologia Fantastica”. (And for anyone who might be confused out there, it was referred to in earlier posts as¬†“Refused To Settle”. But the ‘Don’t Be Afraid of Starting Over’ tagline was always on the back, and in the end I felt like it summed up the idea¬†of the painting better)

Sept. 29, 2014:

Valeska Gavotte‘s new EP¬†Songs for Sinfonietta is out today!

I had the great experience of working with him on the album art for this release, his second for Folkwit Records in the UK. You absolutely gotta check this guy out!

^^^^^

He’s a violinist/composer/multi-instrumentalist that sounds like a symphony crossed with folk and indie, and road trips, and time spent exploring cities…his music makes you picture movies in your head. It’s rich, son.
