Scene adapted from the Japanese Anime “Record of Lodoss War”
1995 (August). Acrylics on paper.
I had this scanned picture for sometime now. Haven’t been disciplined enough in posting them online. But tonight, I heard a song that reminded me of it.
Walter and I had the privilege being invited, quite unplanned, to Vanessa’s home studio. She played a few of her compositions for us. Mostly jazz pieces. But there was one song that sounded very baroque and New Age to me. Vanessa called it “Minstrel”. I suggested she title it “Ballad of the Fallen” because it reminded me of something heroic, noble and sad at the same time. When I reached home, I suddenly recalled I had this painting that just might fit her song (she might not agree that it’ll match her song though, heh). Wish she’d post the song online.
