Title: Yeah Yeah Yeah
Medium:acrylic on canvas
Size:36″X72″

Story: This painting also references Eleanor Rigby and some of the early
songs by the Beatles as they burst onto the music scene. It’s
interesting to also think of the lonely people who might have wandered
the streets at that time, after losing friends and loved ones after
World War Two.
I had not reached ten years old yet  at the time, but I still remember
my dear old dad cursing the Beatles and their music. He said …..”All
they do is sing….. Yeah Yeah Yeah, over and over again….that is not
music!”   Ha Ha. We loved it!
