To Make You Feel My Love

This is a picture that I painted during my senior year in high school. It's called a "word-image." The assignment was to create a painting that incorporates words from a story, poem, or song with an illustration. I chose a song that was written by Robert Zimmerman (Bob Dylan) called To Make You Feel My Love. The song is on the sound track of Hope Floats.

In the foreground is a parchment with the lyrics to the song. The parchment has been burned from the center outwards. In the background is a surreal scene of the border between night and day over the ocean. The luminescent heart is floating in the sea giving hope that the darkness will not prevail. (The painting measures 18"x22")

 

To make You Feel My Love

When the rain is blowing in your face
And the whole world is on your case
I would offer you a warm embrace
To make you feel my love

When the evening shadows and the stars appear
and there is no one to dry your tears
I could hold you for a million years
to make you feel my love

I know you haven't made your mind up yet
but I would never do you wrong
I've known it from the moment that we met
there's no doubt in my mind where you belong

I'd go hungry I'd go black and blue
I'd go crawlin' down the avenue
there ain't nothin' that I wouldn't do
to make you feel my love.

Storms are raging on a rolling sea
down the highway of regret
the winds of change are blowin' wild and free
but you ain't seen nothin' like me yet

There ain't nothin' that I wouldn't do
go to the ends of the Earth for you
make you happy make your dreams come true
to make you feel my love
