STARSTRUCK || is the 2nd of a 4 part series. This painting is based on the soundscapes of August Alsina. Capturing his character with the aura of fame, as a galaxy reflected in his shades, and a starry spray of light. Listening to songs "Downtown" and "Right There" as I painted, I included a weeping willow to represent the trials he has overcome. Coupled with his praying hands, bright lights and deep lows, August knows real life on the come-up.
