Just Like Heaven
6" x 6" x 1.5"
Acrylic andMixed Media on Canvas
I painted this for a dear friend as a baby gift. She is expecting a little girl ina few weeks, her first, and is often asking me what it will be like when her little one arrives. The best way I could describe it was through this Cure song, "Just Like Heaven".
"Show me how you do that trick
The one that makes me scream" she said
"The one that makes me laugh" she said
And threw her arms around my neck
"Show me how you do it
And I promise you I promise that
I'll run away with you
I'll run away with you"
Spinning on that dizzy edge
I kissed her face and kissed her head
And dreamed of all the different ways I had
To make her glow
"Why are you so far away?" she said
"Why won't you ever know that I'm in love with you
That I'm in love with you"
Soft and only
Lost and lonely
Strange as angels
Dancing in the deepest oceans
Twisting in the water
You're just like a dream
