Church Bell


CHURCH BELL
6" x 8"
oil on canvas board

Church bells can resonate in our emotional baggage.  At one end of the spectrum we have John Donne's famous words to remember,  "know for whom the bells tolls; it tolls for thee."

At the other end and more in keeping with the spirit of this painting is "Ding, Dong the bells are gonna chime" from "I'm Get-tin Married in the Morning".
Here is a link to it, sung by Stanley Holloway from MY FAIR LADY.  There is a small vignette of Audrey Hepburn, looking absolutely beautiful in the beginning.
