flower power

22 x 30, acrylic and pastel on BFK
The motto for the counter culture movement in the 1960s and 1970s: Flower Power. With it came images of flowers on clothing, in hair, and handed to rifle toting soldiers and guards.

Flowers continue to connote peace and a resistance to violence. At least, it is my aim to suggest and promote that with this flower.

Peace. How I long for it!

Pete Seeger "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?"'
