Bach In Heaven by jeighdeigh Bach In Heaven by jeighdeigh
Oil on canvas, 2007. About 48" by 36".

UPDATE (3/23/2014): Holey Moley! (Does anyone say that anymore?) A Daily Deviation! My most fervent thanks to Cher of ArtByCher for suggesting this work. And big thanks to everyone who has commented. I'll get around to thanking you, one by one, presently. Now I'm going to go have a beer, or six.

UPDATE (3/24/2014): I'm still recovering from the response that this painting got. Wow.

I've tried to respond to all the comments, but there's no way I can respond to all the people who Favorited it, or who added it to their collections. So, a global Thanks! to those people.

I wish you all a wonderful, creative, exhilarating, fruitful Spring, whether you are alone, grappling with your chosen medium, or playing, or working, or spending sweet hours with those you love.

 Why is this kind of work so rare in your gallery?  What a pity!

There is no doubt where you and the instrument would be.... ;)

...a splendid concept though! In an earlier time,
Mr Day would've been easily as admired and popular
as Maxfield Parrish....

There are many
of his works here - he made his reputation
in advertising - the epitome of "decorative art":

Wow.  This is so beautiful, it might even make me cry.  J. S. Bach is doing this right now, for sure.

Thanks for your interest! My apologies for taking so long to get back to you. I haven't been a very good deviantART citizen lately.

The last time someone asked me that, I told them $10000. That was maybe a bit high -- but you can see from that how much this piece means to me.

Really dig the colours. Great sense of space. You've got aerial perspective nailed. Also love the lit and shady parts of the tree. Works nicely with the lighting on the clouds.

I just saw your work for the first time and I'm speechless. You put so much work and creativity in what you're doing, in every detail, this is amazing. But this painting is one of the most moving arts I've ever seen, even if I don't listen to Bach really often. This is just beautiful. Can't wait to see more!

Thank you, so very much. Your good words about this piece are deeply appreciated. I'm afraid that I must tell you, however, that I'm not likely to do many more paintings like this one. I've had to move to smaller pieces in pen & ink & watercolor. They sell. And besides, pen and ink has always been my favorite medium. But there's a lot of good stuff here that I've done that way. Again -- thank you!

Very nice. I like the way you painted the tree especially the organ and the background itself. What your painting conveys is really powerful.
