PARIS for a Hymnal

The barter: the piece above for two weeks in Paris! Sherry wanted this for Marcus, who loves both the Beatles and the old Baptist hymnal. It is called "Broadman Meets the Beatles" and here's some details:

First, Matisse's joyful Nasturtiums and Dance
superimposed over "Joy to the World"

Sherry's favorite Nativity at Night by Geertgen tins von Saan
superimposed on "Let it Be"...which afterall,
should be a Christmas carol!

Right: Andrei Rublev's icon of the Trinity,
along with "Here, There & Everywhere"

Below: The backside of the hymnal (in process)

And, Gericault's gruesome Raft of the Medusa accompanies
"Love Lifted Me"... read those lyrics and you'll see why.

YES! I got to see the real thing at the Louvre! My image bank is so stuffed it will take months to process this fabulous trip!
