This is a piece that is very special to me. I had originally done a silhouetted piece as a gift for Garth Brooks, but I changed my mind and decided to get rid of that one because I wanted to do a full color piece for him rather than a silhouette. This is the finished full color and it is a piece that took me longer to complete than most of my other pieces because I was battling migraines and other illnesses while working on it. I am very proud of the finished product and once it was complete, we framed it, packaged it for shipping, and boarded a plane with it from my home in Louisiana to Las Vegas, Nevada, where I delivered it to Garth. It is now hanging in his ranch house in Oklahoma, but you may be wondering "Why Garth Brooks?" The reason is that Garth has inspired me ever since I was a little girl and he has always been a very special part of my life. Believe it or not, I became a fan when I was two years old and my first Garth concert was when I was five years old. His music and his voice just moves my soul and it is for that reason that I decided to draw a piece for him and call it You Move Me. I wanted to repay him for everything he and his music have done for me. His lyrics have such powerful messages and they give me hope for a better future for this world we all share.
When the last child cries for a crust of bread, when the last man dies for just words that he said, when there's shelter over the poorest head, we shall be free. When the last thing we notice is the color of skin and the first thing we look for is the beauty within, when the skies and the oceans are clean again, then we shall be free.
