Peace, Love, Music and Fireworks

When I look at this painting Acoustic Cafe I feel like singing that song used in the Coca Cola commercial 
 "I'd like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony.." by the New Seekers
Here's the video of the singers from way back's always of interest to me how hairstyles,
and fashions although updated come around again and again.
I've been singing this song since I was a little kid.

Part of the story behind this painting was shared when I created the work,
 from a guitar eventually covered in the names of American soldiers in Iraq.

If you'd like a print I have offered them in my etsy shop

Thank you to all who keep us Safe and Free in America!
Cheers America!
Happy 4th of July!

Robin, Thank you for sharing this....I had totally forgotten this song. When my 31 yr old son was a baby, we got him a music box that played this because it had been one of my favorite songs. When he left home, his music box was one of the things he wouldn't leave behind.
Making art is so evocative....thank you again.
