Greg Lake by Cynthia-Blair Greg Lake by Cynthia-Blair
Greg Lake “The Voice” of early King Crimson and Emerson Lake & Palmer. He is also a songwriter, guitarist and producer… I confess that my favourite ELP songs were always written/performed by Greg. This painting is inspired by his song “Moonchild” off the first King Crimson album.

Call her Moonchild
Dancing in the shallows of a river
Lovely Moonchild
Dreaming in the shadow
Of the willow.

Talking to the trees of the
Cobweb strange
Sleeping on the steps of a fountain
Waving silver wands to the
Night-bird’s song
Waiting for the sun on the mountain.

She's a moonchild
Gathering the flowers in a garden.
Lovely moonchild
Drifting on the echoes of the hours.

Sailing on the wind
In a milk white gown
Dropping circle stones on a sun dial
Playing hide and seek
With the ghosts of dawn
Waiting for a smile from a Sun child.”


tech details: About 30 hours, painted completely in Photoshop

Oh my. This is stunning! You can see the skill he possesses just by looking at expression.

Also, I really love that silhouette of the woman in the back.
