"True Colors"

Regular price $654.00 $0.00

True Colors is a 20x20 x 1.75 inch original mixed media painting on canvas. This painting is inspired by the 1986 classic by Cyndi Lauper.  The painting features a girl holding a red bird while both of their "true colors come shining through."   In addition to handmade and vintage paper, a page from a fairy tale and other collage materials, the painting includes lyrics and sheet music from the song, and you can see them peeking through the paint.   I listened to the song while painting and it touched my heart all over again!! Such a powerful message.   (The sides are painted in a mixture of white and titan buff to match the painting)

Some of the lyrics:

This world makes you crazy
And you've taken all you can bear
Just call me up
'Cause I will always be there
And I see your true colors
Shining through
I see your true colors
And that's why I love you
So don't be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful
