Blog: I Allowed The Paint To Direct Me

Featured image: She Is Called Peace

I allowed the paint to direct me as I was working on this piece. I loved how the mystical white allowed the figure to emerge from it, she became ethereal, drifting into becoming. As I continued to work on the piece with the mystical white guiding me, I added a dove to enhance the ambiance of the work and the peaceful feeling that the mystical white created. The title of this work became Give Peace a Chance.

It makes sense as I grew up in the 60’s and we were flower children. There are so many songs on peace. Two of my favorites are: Give Peace A Chance and Peaceful Easy Feeling.

Peace: I wish you peace.

 

Lyrics

I like the way your sparkling earrings lay
Against your skin so brown
And I want to sleep with you in the desert night
With a billion stars all around

'Cause I got a peaceful easy feelin'
And I know you won't let me down
'Cause I'm already standin'
On the ground

And I found out a long time ago
What a woman can do to your soul
Aw but she can't take you any way
You don't already know how to go

And I got a peaceful easy feelin'
And I know you won't let me down
'Cause I'm already standin'
On the ground

I get this feelin' I may know you
As a lover and a friend
This voice keeps whisperin' in my other ear
Tells me I may never see you again

'Cause I get a peaceful easy feelin'
And I know you won't let me down
'Cause I'm already standin'
I'm already standin'
Yes, I'm already standin'
On the ground
