Michael Carini | Beneath The Wings Of Free Swan (Deanne’s Song)
“Beneath The Wings Of Free Swan (Deanne’s Song)” took me almost three years to get to because I didn’t want to address it or acknowledge it, but I finally did. This is the tribute painting for Deanne Hastings, who disappeared in Washington almost 3 years ago. She always used to call me Wings and is the reason I have them on my back. Now I’m under hers and this tribute is her swan song as she is finally free of this cage and hopefully at peace.
I’ve been painting with fire since I rose from the ashes-

“Chasing The Gate (Searching For Deanne)” reflects feelings of anxiety, depression, and glimmers of hope as it highlights the disappearance of my best friend and muse, Deanne Hastings, several years ago. I always hear that time heals all but time doesn’t make it easier…it just gives you longer to think about where she is and what happened to her. This painting depicts a long quest to find her and meeting her at the gateway of heaven.
