La Luce di Amesole - Canzone

This painting represents the last of the 4 songs sung within Immortalized.  It's a digital/traditional hybrid of La Luce Amesole - Canzone.  The traditional version was finished off in oil, and the underpainting was constructed using grounds and pumice gels.  In the book, it states, "Next he somehow found a way to sculpt rock onto the canvas.  The artistic magic flowing through him demanded that it be done this way.  Now rock was built into the painting in a way, which would enforce the barrier between his eventual whooshy wiggling wild waves and her sensitive sandy gold.  The boundary that separated their two worlds."

When creating the hybrid version it was imperative for the sculpted rock and sand to be apparent.  It was also essential for other elements of the traditional painting to be included.  Therefore, the rocky formations, sand, violin, glowing figure, and parts of the sky were taken entirely from the original oil painting.   

Most importantly was that this piece along with all the others encapsulates the most important aspect of the character Amelie, her inner beauty.   Right before Remick drops his paintbrush, he adds the final touch, "There was only one thing left to do, the final touch.  Forever the sun needed to shine.  He never wanted her bright light to burn out.  There was a type of mineral oil which when added to the paint would never allow it to oxidize, so around and around the sun he went until the light was made complete.  If the rocks cracked and the beach was washed away, the sun would still shine brightly."

True to the book this was done in the traditional painting of La Luce di Amesole - Canzone.  In the hybrid, the light is supposed to be felt more than seen, because the sun is hiding behind the mountain.  The greatest mystery in this painting won't be revealed in words, but its secret was given away in Immortalized.  

 

 Let me write in the shadow of your light as I hideaway

Uh, Uuuh, bring forth the day

And the ocean spray

Please come my way, never fade away

 

Words to sketches, yeah, scorching perfection

She shines ever so brightly, dawning the narration

Sky petaled smiles, sketches to poems

 

Let me write in the shadow of your light as I hideaway

Uh, Uuuh, bring forth the day

And the ocean spray

Please come my way, never fade away

 

(All of the stringed instruments stopped with the exception of a piano)

 

Ah, aah, ah, ah, aaaah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah

 

What’s that you say Isabey

Stretched cotton canvas, poems to paintings

Uh, high above me, dawning the narration

Uh, Uuuh, she’s so lovely, in her illumination

Shades and tints entwine, starshine creations

 

It’s everything you are, a work of art

Sunlit harmonies of the heart

Brightness abound, how it neatly sweetly enshrouds

Rosebush foundation, incandescent illumination

Starshine creations, always dawning the narration

 

(All the instruments began to play in unison with emphasis on the cello)

 

Let me write in the shadow of your light as I hideaway

How I love the day

And the ocean spray

Please come my way, never fade away

 

Shine your light to banish the night, Merci beaucoup

 

Words to sketches, sketches turned to poems

Oh li ah, Oh li ah ah, Oh li ah ah ah ha

Stretched cotton canvas

Poems to paintings, now the paintings sing

Childhood recollections, dreamlike reflections

Oceanic transcendence, beyond heavenly ascendence

 

How I love the day

And the ocean spray

Please come my way, never fade away

 

But even if the ocean dries

And the coastline cries

As long as the sun shines

A personality so divine

Forevermore immortalized

 

(All the instruments stop, now the violin starts, a very whimsical tune, played with vigor)

 

(Now they operatically started singing in a tearful way so their emotions could be felt perfectly within the repetitious tune) 

 

oooo-oo-oooo, na nuu, the day will always turn to night

ooooo-oo-oooo, na nuu, I’ll never be your white knight

For I’m am bound to midnight

 

oodooroo, da doo, oodooroo, daa doo, oodooroo-daa doo (over the top, could be heard the word day)

oodooroo, da doo, oodooroo, daa doo, oodooroo-daa doo (over the top, could be heard the word day)

oodooroo, da doo, oodooroo, daa doo, oodooroo-daa doo (over the top, could be heard the word day)

,uuh uh, uuh ay, I will always always love the day
