Sting by Alissia Sting by Alissia
"He deals the cards as a meditation
And those he plays never suspect
He doesn't play for the money he wins
He doesn't play for the respect

He deals the cards to find the answer
The sacred geometry of chance
The hidden law of probable outcome
The numbers lead a dance

I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier
I know that the clubs are weapons of war
I know that diamonds mean money for this art
But that's not the shape of my heart

He may play the jack of diamonds
He may lay the queen of spades
He may conceal a king in his hand
While the memory of it fades

I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier
I know that the clubs are weapons of war
I know that diamonds mean money for this art
But that's not the shape of my heart
That's not the shape, the shape of my heart

And if I told you that I loved you
You'd maybe think there's something wrong
I'm not a man of too many faces
The mask I wear is one
Those who speak know nothing
And find out to their cost
Like those who curse their luck in too many places
And those who smile are lost

I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier
I know that the clubs are weapons of war
I know that diamonds mean money for this art
But that's not the shape of my heart
That's not the shape of my heart"


- Sting

I love Sting and his music. my favorite songs are "Shape of my Heart", "Fragile", "Mad About You", "Inside", "A Thousand Years", etc, etc, etc, etc.

This is his portrait.
I had absolutely no trouble with it - the process was so smooth I'm sad that it's finished!

The lyrics in the background are from "That's not the Shape of My heart", "Inside" and "Fragile".

I don't like talking about my art - I think it's self explanatory. In fact I don't think that a good illustrator has to talk about it at all - it's my job to comunicate visually.

I want to know YOUR opinion, what YOU see in this portrait, rather than me talking about it.

Please leave a comment! Your comments are so helpful and interesting!

Thank you very much.

Alisa

Okay, got the print today (I ordered a giclee on paper) and it looks terrific - I'm really happy with it and can't wait to get it framed. The quality is outstanding.
