This Celtic Cover would've looked amazing on 'Wheels Within Wheels" I hated that death mask cover and I pasted a
nicer photo of Rory over it. I dont need a daily reminder that he's gone.

Hi Dwana, Yes when i first saw the picture of Rory of the Wheels Within Wheels Album I just gasped! I do like abstract art. I read the interview regarding the making of Wheels Within Wheels by Donal and it was an amazing interview from 2003. Here is the full interview:-

I also have a few things to tell you that has happened over the last couple of months and its been mind-blowing. I will fill you in over the weekend. Hope you are well. Subrata. x

It's taken me ages to finally get around to drawing the great man, but here it is. It's in coloured pencil. He is surrounded by Christ being devoured by serpents, and his beloved Ireland. At first it looks bright and jovial but, looking closer it is disturbing because I wanted to convey both his guileless joy and his dark, persistent demons. Image

Hi Diana,

As a former art college student and finished graphic designer's point of view ..
I love this composition. Although you've explained it to us above. To an on looker not knowing what your thoughts were, it will have many different aspects and interpretations to the individual. Which is always an essential part to any masterpiece imho..
To me personally in all the beautiful colours and tones in this Shadow Play :) I'm glad you've captured (centre piece) Just The Smile still as a contrast :)

Slainte for sharing, Jay Jay

I'm thrilled you guys like it!! Wow. Totally flattered. Yes - his smile is the calm in the storm, like music was in his life. His delight in his music is like a kid's - it's so touching.
