Axis: Bold as Love – Kristi Warren
I was a fan of Jimi Hendrix at the age of 14 and was so taken with him that I painted a whole wall in my room black and added black light paints and fluorescent posters of Jimi as my own personal tribute to him. It started me on murals and opened my mind to art as a way of expression. My style now usually tends to more floral work but I have always had this idea in the back of my head of painting Jimi’s song, “Axix: Bold as Love”.
“Anger, he smiles,
towering in shiny metallic purple armor
Queen jealousy envy, waits behind him
Her fiery green gown sneers at the grassy ground”………..
The song is not necessarily my favorite Hendrix tune, (Redhouse is right up there) but it paints a picture for you musically and that has always made it a little special to me.
