MADONNA© (Oswoa)

PLEASE listen to the text of Pavarotti & Bono (U2) (Live)
in this beautiful song,
a plea for peace and justice,

a version of Schubert's Ave Maria.

Ave Maria... where is the justice in this world?
The wicked make so much noise, mother
The righteous stay oddly still with no wisdom,
all of the riches in the world leave us poor tonight

And strength is not without humility
Its weakness, an untreatable disease
And war is always the choice
Of the chosen who will not have to fight
Ave Maria ....

Ave Maria
Gratia plena
Maria, gratia plena
Maria, gratia plena
Ave, ave dominus Deo


Information "white lines" :
I love to work with the *BATIK METHOD to outline the abstract shapes.
The white lines enhance the colors and provide that extra bold dimension.
*Batik method: Drawing with rubber cement to block the colors creating white lines.
Use a pick-up eraser to erase the cement.
