"Flower Child"

The first completed painting is named after and inspired by "Flower Child" . It is a hauntingly beautiful song.  This painting was not only inspired by the lyrics, but also by  my husband's cousin who is a young talented singer/songwriter- Brittany Cook, who is featured in the painting and loves the song as well. For some reason the lyrics  reminded me of her and it was planned she'd be in it before she even told me that she also loved the song.....I guess that means it was meant to be.


This painting is just the first of many. I have a sketchbook full of ideas that I jot down throughout the day as I listen, how it makes me feel, etc.

Hope you enjoy because I am enjoying working on them.


"Flower Child"
Everybody hates you today, A superstar by tomorrow
You gotta put a smile on Just to hide your sorrow
But you have walked Where others fear to tread
And there's a light at the end You gotta reach out your hand
You gotta go find some love There's a whole lotta love to be got
You're my flower child  And I'm your forget-me-not
Then all your friends disappear  And you feel so alone
And the only thing you're dreaming of  Are memories of hope
So love me today  And forget about tomorrow
Cause you don't have to wear a smile now And I'll take away your sorrow
You gotta go find some love There's a whole lotta love to be got
You're my flower child I'm your forget-me-not
Everybody hates you today A superstar by tomorrow
And you don't have to wear a smile now And I'll take away your sorrow
You gotta go find some love There's a whole lotta love to be got
You're my flower child And I'm your forget-me-not
