"EVERYTHING WILL BE OK IN THE END, IF IT'S NoT OK IT'S NOT THE END" John Lennon
As we bring 2013 to a close, and anticipate the dawn of the new year, this is the ultimate advise, don't you think?
In other words, no matter how things look today, with a new year, we all have the opportunity to get it right, to do it better.
Those of you you follow my work know I have used this quote before in other pieces. I like it! And I am not alone. Customers who come into the gallery where I show my work, seem to like it too. This piece sold a few days before Christmas.
Initial research credited this quote to John Lennon, however, further digging revealed a variety of origins, from a recent movie, to a Brazilian fiction writer. In fact, it has even been credited to No One (Anonymous).
I like this quote because it is memorable I like it because it can be used as a simple general statement of curiosity and how truly free from complication life and the world around us can be.
A wooden box has been covered, front and back in various papers, including text, music, magazine images and tissues, frame the vintage children's alphabet blocks that spell out the quote.
A small frog on top finishes the piece. Ready to hang.
