Hi Lenore, thank you :)

Alec, this is such a bold and dynamic work of art! And how it fits the truth as expressed by Jackson Browne! Thanks for sharing your art and the quote!

Hello Michael, your feedback means a lot...thank you.

Perfect pairing of words and art. Well thought out and beautifully accomplished Alec. V/F/SU

Alec Drake replied:

Thank you appreciate your feedback my friend.

Alec, Agree with Dean - powerful and rife with feeling! suvft. Maureen

Alec Drake replied:

Thank you Maureen...a tough reminder for all of us.

Powerful work Alec, and interesting and fitting words by Browne. The starts remind me of those on the American flag, perhaps representing disenfranchisement with the American dream. Vote/fav!

Alec Drake replied:

The lyrics speak to the headlines in Syria and to all suffering around the world today. Thank you Dean for taking note, your reaction and contribution in thought.

Artist's Description

I've been waiting for something to happen For a week or a month or a year With the blood in the ink of the headlines And the sound of the crowd in my ear You might ask what it takes to remember When you know that you've seen it before Where a government lies to a people And a country is drifting to war And there's a shadow on the faces Of the men who send the guns To the wars that are fought in places Where their business interest runs On the radio talk shows and the t.v. You hear one thing again and again How the u.s.a. stands for freedom And we come to the aid of a friend But who are the ones that we call our friends-- These governments killing their own? Or the people who finally can't take any more And they pick up a gun or a brick or a stone There are lives in the balance There are people under fire There are children at the cannons And there is blood on the wire Jackson Browne - Lives in the Balance

About Alec Drake

Biography - For years I searched for the roots to my artistic cravings. When I first discovered digital art in 1999, it was apparent this form of expression was a perfect fit. The digital realm allows me to spread out to multiple levels of creativity. Working with tools like Paint Shop Pro 7-14, Painter Essentials and digital brushes on my Wacom tablet, there are endless creative paths to follow my inspirations. My approach to art is best summed up by Allen Saunders, who in 1957 wrote “ Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans”. This phrase was later made popular by John Lennon in his song 'Beautiful Boy'. I have a love for color and you will see it dominate much of my work. The impact of color on our mind state, spirit...
