THE CHILDREN OF THE WORLD
HAVE TO PAY THE PRICE?"

The Scorpions wrote a beautiful and heartfelt song about this unfortunately still so accurate and ongoing situation of
the suffering of so many innocent children on this planet Earth.

Please listen to this awesome song, conveying an important message,

JOHN ENRIGHT:
"Your words are so vital and timeless in this war torn world of greed. So many billions/TRILLIONS of dollars are spent on death and destruction, while the helpless die in starvation. Its completely amazing that over 50% of our population continues to vote for WAR instead of PEACE."

About this symbol of peace and freedom,
expressive, simple and divine:

This probably is the smallest collage I ever made (5"x7"); it's an oil and I used mixed media.
I love the rich combination of Burnt Sienna and Indian yellow.
I even added some gold- and copper leaf to add richness of this peace bringer.
Did you notice the reoccurring use of music notes in my work?
(I think it gives this piece/peace an extra dimension!)

I like the -s p e e d - this small oil/collage seems to have.
Everything is moving in this painting,
in which I tried to capture the nature of the symbol.
Enjoy!

Materials used:
Chinese newspaper, vintage music sheet, sisal, heavy gloss gel,
modeling paste, copper- and gold leaf, oil paint.

Text lyrics:
Place without a name
Under a burning sky
There's no milk and honey here
In the land of God
Someone holds a sign
It says we are human, too
And while the sun goes down
The world goes by

CHORUS
White dove fly with the wind
Take our hope under your wings
For the world to know
That hope will not die
Where the children cry

Waves, big like a house
They're stranded on a piece of wood
To leave it all behind
To start again
But instead of a new life
All they find is a door that's closed
And they keep looking for a place called hope
[CHORUS]

Can anyone tell me why
The children of the world
Have to pay the price?

And now your telling me
You've seen it all before
I know that's right but still
It breaks my heart
Well, the golden lamb we sent
Makes us feel better now
But you know it's just a drop
In a sea of tears.
[CHORUS]
