Grateful Dead lyrics can be so beautiful, mysterious and with lovely nature references. The piece below was inspired by the song, Ripple, written by Robert Hunter and Jerry Garcia. Here are some of the lyrics:
And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung
Would you hear my voice come through the music
Would you hold it near as it were your own?…
When there is no pebble tossed
Nor wind to blow
If your cup is full may it be again…”
Often, I’ll digitally alter my art to create a few different color versions for prints. The original hand cut paper collage was light green and white, but I really like how the red and light blue one turned out. (Sometimes I like the digitally colored versions better than the original!)
Prints are available in my shop. All prints are archival, printed with ink on 100% cotton fine art paper. They are open edition because they are giclee prints AND it would suck if my favorite musicians only released 200 copies of their songs. I would never do that to you. 🙂
Thank you so much for visiting!
