When Smokey Sings




I had a lot of fun making this record for the lovely Amy in Los Angeles.  It was inspired by the colors of the old  psychedelic 60's Peter Max art (love that guy), with a theme of peace, love, and flowers.  The underpainting has shimmery violet iridescence added to it, which the camera sadly doesn't pick up.
But trust me, when you tilt it into some light, it glows like a happy, glowey, tripped out butterfly.



Here's a close up.  One more super cool thing about this record: It used to be Smokey Robinson and the Miracles.  Amy wanted to give it to a friend who was born in the late 60's.  
I found this album and it was made in 1968.  PERFECT.
Year of the monkey, baybee.
