“Johnny Cash” an Amalee Original is a beautiful portrait of a rock n Roll icon and a wonderful man. This Painting is now on display at PianoFight in San Francisco, until March 8th, 2018.
I love the famous photo of Johnny Cash in Folsom prison, giving the finger. So I painted that image and used the words “I’m recalibrating my inner sanctimonium!”. I came up with these words when I realized there are times I feel like an outsider because society does not accept me or maybe it is because I don’t accept society. Either way when I am on the outside looking in, Johnny Cash is my hero.There are times in life when I feel like this.
I am in the process of trying to change my emotional wiring. There is a part of me that wishes I could just download a new operating system. However, I am in the process of dredging my soul for the small and large injuries that created a wiring that I am finding unfulfilling.
As I dig around in the underbelly, I realize the instability of my foundation. While survival is important, I look forward to enjoying life.
I love this painting because it is funny. It captures the underground figure in my soul. Sort of a love/hate reality with humanity. On the one hand feeling superior and on the other feeling jealous, but not really feeling part of it.
