Sixteen Miles (Astrid 2009)


My 5th annual Astrid painting is complete! The previous four years can be found here: http://www.majoh.com/oldart.htm

The only goal is to outdo the previous year’s painting by applying everything I’ve learned in the previous 12 months. It’s become a way to gauge my progress, and I look forward to it every year. 🙂

This one is named for an Ego Likeness song:

Take what’s yours and go while you still can while it’s still dark outside before he’s cold.
Law man come into your broken home hide the hammer draw the blinds grab the little one and go.
You’ve got 16 miles of wasteland left to go.

Hike up your skirt now you better run girl run. Hike up your skirt now you better run girl run.
Before they find out what you’ve done. Before they find out what you’ve done. You’d better run girl run.

The truth smashed into your face like his big hard hand. Ripped up your hope ripped up your dress.
This was your empire o queen of all that’s pure. Until he broke your crown burned your kingdom down

You’ve got 16 miles of wasteland left to go before the morning comes you’ve got 16 miles of wasteland left to go.
