Strawberry Fields

2008 Acrylic on canvas 36 x 24 inches
"Strawberry Fields" is an original, signed acrylic painting on a gallery-wrapped canvas by artist Michael Arnold. The painting was inspired the movie “Across the Universe.” I wanted the larger than life red strawberries to pop against the bright yellow background. The pop art painting easily reminds us of the Beatles song "Strawberry Fields Forever", which was written by John Lennon. After the fourth verse, the song fades out and fades in again to dissonant melodies with Lennon saying, "cranberry sauce" but was misheard by many Paul is dead theorists as Lennon saying, "I buried Paul".
