Stand By Me
"Stand By Me" is the finale of my Little Yellow Bird series! It features our heroine's hopes and dreams for the future with her love. I gave it this title, based on the song by Ben e. King, because I could hear this beautiful song playing in my mind as I painted. Then, when I looked up the lyrics, it felt like perfect synchronicity. This painting measures 24x24x1.75" and is mixed media on canvas. The flowers included are mostly dahlias with a few strawflowers and cosmos mixed into the moonlit garden. Mixed media elements include Nepalese handmade papers, pages from a French romance novel and an array of scraps from my travels to Paris. So much love went into this piece, and it reminds us that...
When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we'll see
No I won't be afraid
Oh, I won't be afraid
Just as long as you stand, stand by me
