Feeling akin to some sort of Prisoner at a The Velvet Underground jam session at the Factory in the late 60's.

Artists and designers the world over owe a huge debt to Andy Warhol's eccentric artistry. Who hasn't been encouraged to experiment in recreating one or more of his famous works of art such as Marilyn's multi-coloured headshots or his self-portrait? His ground-breaking use of basic colors have been a starting point for many experiments which ultimately lead artists into strange and unique territory.

What better way to celebrate COLOR than to give tribute to the person whom showed the world that color CAN be both the vehicle and the subject. What was avant-garde pop art yesteryear is now quaint passe today. The same holds true now and always going forward. And while I'm not a particularly big fan of Andy's art, (despite this pano, not really my style) I very much appreciate and am thankful for the influence he had and continues to have on the art world, and unknowingly the rest of the non-art world too.

So here is my gratitude (and my thanks to The Velvet Underground for influencing music I love) and a dedication to the memory of artists of all styles both past and future who blaze trails normal humans never would have imagined.

What's up with that bizarre music choice?
