Peace Song Art

I have been creating art inspired by peace songs. These are paintings, sculptures and mixed media pieces, each referring to a specific song about peace and love. They are different dimensions, some large and some small.

I started working on this because the songs, many of them from the sixties, are so relevant and important for what is going on in the world and in our country today.
