24"x30"

I never like to discuss lyrics and their relavance to you or me but this song is basically adivce to us all. With Dave's already iconic "Be kind always" and "shine your light" hiding in the "mist" to "Don't be something you're not". The painting is mixed media at the highest level with metal rusty hinges on the window, a rusty star and a vintage lens with "That's not a star...that's a satellite" behind the glass. His medals read "Fill up your head", "Fill up your heart" and "Shine your light". Acrylic paint, enamels, various vintage papers on stretched gallery canvas.

 

"Keep your head up
And try to listen to your heart
Be kind always, no matter
We all grow up
And someday we'll say goodbye
So shine your light while you got one

Make the most of what you got
Don't waste time trying to be something you're not
Fill up your head
Fill up your heart
And take your shot
Don't waste time tryin' to be something you're not

Once 'round
Just once
Take your shot
Don't waste time trying to be something you're not
You fill up your head
Fill up your heart
Cause that's all we got
Don't waste time trying to be someone you're not

Through your window
Well that's one way to see the world
Step outside and look back into
Look and listen
You decide what to believe
So shine your light while you got one"
