I'm really at a loss for words when it comes to describing what Michael Jackson represents for me. He was a great artist, an incredible show man and, most of all, an extraordinary human being. He'll always be in my heart!
I remember this shot and the performance very well, I think its the most that has been retained in my memory. He was really mind blowing then, yelling while people tried to yell louder. It was very awesome, he's awesome. And this painting of that, where the moment, the feel, his energy plus the loud noise even is recreated here. The impressions of the smoke and wind plus his captured expression and stance for me shout that
This is magnificent! I love the background, it evokes a very Van Gogh sentiment. Were you trying to convey Mr. Jackson's inner tumult, as well as making the genius parallel? Either way, it is a great piece and a fitting tribute to such a dynamic force in music.
