I titled this piece “California Dreamin’” because often times when I think of LA, I think about the hippie movement of the 60’s and 70’s. More specifically, I’ve been inspired by the music of The Doors who, in my mind, where the representatives of the hippie culture in LA. This piece depicts a hippie couple that sought out the ideals of the hippie culture in California during that time. Of course, music and mind expanding drugs played a large role in the counter culture movement.
