simone’s song

this is the second version of my Nina Simone painting, she is one of my art heroes.

simone’s song
24×32″ acrylic on birchwood
sold

black is the color is my true love’s hair
his face so soft and wondrous fair
the purest eyes and the strongest hands
i love the ground on where he stands

black is the color of my true love’s hair
oh, i love my lover and well he knows
yes, i love the ground on where he goes
and still i hope that the time will come
when he and i will be as one
black is the color of my true love’s hair

– Nina Simone
