Laleh - Oh my tangerine
At Peace & Love I finally got to see her live, and it was just as incredible as I hoped. As I stood there I knew I had to paint her once I was back home and this is the result. I want to send it to her as a sort of thank you for all the comfort I've found in her music throughout my life from insecure teenager to a reasonably happy adult. I also want to send lots of love and thoughts to Karin Wahlbäck who I know also is a huge fan of Laleh. That woman was also there when I really needed it, always giving me a secure place to run to when I was sad and confused about life.
This feels very personal, and it is, but I'm really happy I managed to finish this piece and I hope it makes all those who haven't listened to this music to appreciate it! Just watch this video!
