I knew exactly what I wanted to paint – an image as haunting as the album and its concept. My daughter and her big brown eyes would be a perfect stand-in for the conjoined twins at the story’s core.
I bought and embellished a tiny hat.
I convinced my daughter to pose for me. (She never needs much convincing, really.)
I painted it in my head a hundred times.
And this week, I stayed up late – and painted it for real.
