Those were the days my friend...

"Those were the days" 2.5" x 3.5"
Mixed media collage, SOLD


...I am having a walk down memory lane as I go through my old Cd's to rip songs to my mp3. Songs are powerful for me. They evoke a time and place almost instantly in my head. I can remember where I was, what I was doing, who I was with...all from a song. So the memories are thick at the moment. They envelope me and fill my heart with long lost loves, friends and events. The power of music is amazing.

Now you've done it! I will be singing that song for the next two days (or until I accidently hear another old favorite). The collage is perfect.

Great piece....evokes the song perfectly.
I know what you mean about the music. I had to finally switch stations in the studio to just new age background, as anything else seemed to take over my emotions enough to effect my art! Music is a very powerful force to me.

That was my first 45 record when I was about 9 years old....Mary Hopkins I think? I do know it was on Apple records...I remember the big green apple.

Fab collage BTW :)
