My Vision of Peace
When my sons were younger, I was very involved in their elementary school. In the spring, the annual fundraising event included the auction of classroom art projects. For many years, I got up on a ladder and photographed the kindergarteners as they used their bodies to form letters.

I always enjoyed the process of creating these pieces for auction " and I loved all of the parents who came together, who united for a common goal. The success of the projects and the success of the event were truly a group effort.

I felt that most who view this piece, once they recognize that the text is the lyrics to John Lennon's "Imagine", probably wouldn't read it word-for-word. So, I chose to punctuate some words.

Also, although the word 'and' is part of the last line, I chose to place it on its own while positioning the last line below the kids' photographic image -- I felt that the viewer would take a quick look, they would mainly see:

And... Imagine the world will be as one.

Photo images were taken with a Canon PowerShot. The entire piece was created in Photoshop.

Love the way you created the letters, and delivered the message. Amen!
