~Forevor Young~

I finished this small acrylic on canvas last night. It's a small center scene of blowing dandelions with the lyrics to 'Forever Young' written in script in the background.

I free-handed the words with a small brush, making sure to keep it wet so the words flowed smooth. Then, I lightly spray painted in a cream color from about a foot away, to make the words appear faded and distant. Lastly, I went back over select words to make them stand out in the foreground.

My mom said this song always made her think of me, so of course now when I hear it, I think about her. It's always stuck in my head. In a good way.

May the good lord be with you
Down every road you roam
And may sunshine and happiness
Surround you when you're far from home

And may you grow to be proud
Dignified and true
And do unto others
As you'd have done to you

Be courageous and be brave
And in my heart you'll always stay
Forever young

May good fortune be with you
May your guiding light be strong
Build a stairway to heaven
With a prince or a vagabond

And may you never love in vain
And in my heart you will remain
Forever young

And when you finally fly away
Ill be hoping that I served you well
For all the wisdom of a lifetime
No one can ever tell

But whatever road you choose
Im right behind you, win or lose
Forever young
