"Natural Mystic"

"Natural Mystic" 2021 24"x 30" mix media $1800

There's a natural mystic

Blowing through the air

If you listen carefully now you will hear

This could be the first trumpet

Might as well be the last

Many more will have to suffer

Many more will have to die

Don't ask me why

Inspired by the lyrics from the song Natural Mystic by "Bob Marley"
