Power of Love

I have been trying to paint a feeling, a desire, a dream of mine. I have a wonderful husband, a great loving family, a beautiful little home, with a porch swing, so when confronted with the question:
"What is your dream?", I had to say, I am very blessed, however, I would love to see world peace; that is my dream! I believe the only way we will have world peace, is with unconditional love for EVERYONE.  I ran across a quote by Jim Hendrix "When the Power of Love overcomes the Love of Power, we will have world peace."  That said it all for me.....trying to paint that message was a little harder to do. This is my attempt to show Love overcoming power. The "white love" is shining with interference gold. The "dark power" is a mix of Turquoise (Phthalo), Macaceous Iron Oxide, and a tiny bit of black. Every time I look at this painting, I am reminded to be a little kinder to everyone I meet. I will do my part, how about you?

Very nice interpretation! I'm a big fan of Jimi Hendrix and can't believe I haven't read this quote before now. Of all the kind loving people we have met over the past 45 years in this country and abroad, it's hard to imagine why it's so difficult to realize world peace. Almost impossible to eliminate love of power within the human race. Looking forward to our visit!
