Missing John Lennon

It amazes me that 31 years have gone by since the senseless murder of John Lennon.  I remember exactly where I was and the horrific moment when the newscaster cut into Monday Night Football to make the announcement.  I remember walking into my office the next day, my eyes swollen from crying and talking to a co-worker who I had no idea was also a fan.  We became best friends and have remained so, John Lennon brought us together.
John Lennon was a generous, charitable man and I consider myself fortunate to have been able to see him in concert when he performed at a charity event, an experience I will never forget.
Thirty-one years later, I still miss the genius of John Lennon and wonder what would have been had he lived.

Imagine a world living in peace… John did and I tried to channel his world-embracing and loving energy this week with a tribute portrait inspired by his music and his passion for changing the world. You can see this new work of art in memoriam on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/12/john-lennon-just-imagine.html
