What a fantastic b-day gift, my 1st etsy sale!! My 2 Green Beatles - Love collages sold today. How happy! I am so excited to think someone is going to be sharing the joy I put into these pieces. I will miss seeing them... enjoy Claire.
The images are up-cycled from a calendar from the American Heart Association, an organization I donate to regularly. Both my parents have advanced heart disease & being the leading cause of death in our country, so it is something I am passionate about.
Each piece is based on a based-love based song: The Word & The End... Almost everyone is familiar with the simple but complex lines of The End from Abby Road. But The Word is one of my favorites and a song with intense meaning!
The Word has been my mantra for the past year (& most played song on my mp3). It's one of those Beatles song's that you know it when you hear it, but really can't recall it by name. It's from the Rubber Soul album & its a fun song about the message of love. One of the underrated/under played song... especially when you hear the words:
Say the word and you'll be freeSay the word and be like meSay the word I'm thinking ofHave you heard the word is love?It's so fine,It's sunshineIt's the word, loveIn the beginning I misunderstoodBut now I've got it,the word is goodSpread the word and you'll be freeSpread the word and be like meSpread the word I'm thinking ofHave you heard the word is love?It's so fine, It's sunshine,It's the word, loveEverywhere I go I hear it saidIn the good and the bad books that I have readSay the word and you'll be freeSay the word and be like meSay the word I'm thinking ofHave you heard the word is love?It's so fine, It's sunshineIt's the word, loveNow that I know what I feel must be rightI'm here to show everybody the lightGive the word a chance to sayThat the word is just the wayIt's the word I'm thinking ofAnd the only word is loveIt's so fine, It's sunshine,It's the word, love- The Beatles
