"When she was just a girl
She expected the world
But it flew away from her reach
So she ran away in her sleep

And dreamed of para- para- paradise
...Every time she closed her eyes"
from the song Paradise by Coldplay

May all of your dreams come true in 2012! Happy New Year everybody! I love this song. It's been on my mind a lot and was the inspiration for this painting. If you want to listen to it, I've included it below:

A glow of copper on the fields
Ripe last year's fruits
Exploding stars in turquoise skies
Announce a new morn's wonder.

If you don't mind I'll link your picture to my blog.

Thank you for your wishes! The same goes to you : )

Wow. I think you've channeled Van Gogh. What a fascinating painting! (I love Van Gogh, by the way. I saw his paintings way back when I was in 6 th. grade. I'll never forget seeing his bedroom painting.)

Pam Tucker said...

Bill: Aww, thank you, my friend! I love Van Gogh, too. My mother-in-law made an awesome art quilt inspired by his Starry Night painting. *sigh* He certainly can inspire! Happy New Year to you! I look forward to another year of creating art together! :-)
