THE RIGHT TO LOVE (TWO GUYS)
THE RIGHT TO LOVE (TWO GUYS) is a 7 x 5.5 work on paper. Vintage sheet music is adapted and colored (prismacolor markers, pen, paint pen.) The original image on the easel was replaced with a b&w photo booth picture (blown up, cut out, mounted on a sky background and hand-colored with prismacolor markers and photo dyes.) It is another in my series GIVE US THE RIGHT TO LOVE. I wonder why two guys together shakes up the sanctimonious Christian right?
The sheet music Give Me the Right to Love You was published in 1917. The painting on the artist's easel was an elegantly dressed, hugely-haired lady. I have replaced her with couples in a series that updates the modern possibilities for love.
A lyric from the song is ''We'll build a nest and fill it just full of love, Where we can coo like doves pretty doves turtle doves lovey doves. Give me the right to drive all your sorrows away." I wonder why two guys married shakes up the sanctimonious Christian right?
