Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds

Title:”Lucy in the Sky with diamonds”
medium: acrylic on canvas
Size: 24″X36″

Story: Another one of my favourite songs. Lot’s of words written on the
meaning of this one. Trying to know the actual truth is difficult to
figure out. I go with what John Lennon said. He  swore that it was not
about LSD. He said his son Julian inspired the song with a nursery
school drawing he called “Lucy—in the sky with diamonds”. I guess we
will never fully know the truth. He always pulled peoples legs in
interviews etc.

Elton John recorded it in 1974

John Lennon explains – he looks sincere but was he really pulling our leg?
