Jamie Hansen Dark Night Painting

Dark Night of The Soul I

11" x 14
watercolor by Jamie Hansen
Soundtrack: Ola Gjello’s “Dark Night of the Soul.”

My latest watercolor series is inspired by contemporary choral music: this was painted to Ola Gjello’s “Dark Night of the Soul.”

My Soundscapes are partly born from the spaces I had painted around the musicians from my portraits project. What would I see if I looked in the spaces around them, where their music and their confidence surrounded them like a veil? Their sound and their energy would hang in the air like haze of color around them. The emotion from their music would be like a vapor that colored the space.
