Jupiter Falls (Pinder Brothers and father Mike)

The Inspiration:

(freehand and painted in water based oils)

This painting was inspired by listening to the Pinder Brothers’ album track, Jupiter falls.

A beautiful album full of harmonies.

The Pinder Brothers are very talented musicians and take after their father, Mike Pinder, the keyboard mellotron wizard who used to play with The Moody Blues until 1978.

It was wonderful to speak to Mike (whose songs I love) and his wife Tara Pinder on the telephone from USA in 2006.

  They wanted to buy my original painting.
