Illustration Friday: Theater

Update: image changed.the first image was small and not so clear.This is still a work on progress...
The first time I went to the Theater was to watch the musical "Joseph the Dreamer". The inspiration came when I saw the picture of this man on a magazine and right away, I started making the coat of Joseph. "Colors" is one of the song in the musical and I can still imagine the scene everytime I played the song. It was really beautiful.
This is the narrative and the meaning of the coat Joseph was wearing.
Joseph had a coat of many colors
Joseph had a closet full of dreams
That told how he would one day rule his brothers
And tore his life apart right at the seams

´cause Joseph's brothers sold him into slavery
And sent him on his way to egypt land
And the day the dreamer started out for egypt
The nightmare of israel began

The dreamer made his bed in Pharaoh's kingdom
But his masters woman layed for him
It seems she had her own dreams for the dreamer
And sent him up when he would not give in

But Pharaoh got word about the dreamer
Cause Pharaoh took to dreamin' on his own
Pharaoh took a likin' to the dreamer
Set him free and called him to the throne

The dreams that he interpreted for pharoah
Told about the famine yet to come
He rationed out the food to pharaoh's kingdom
So there'd be enough for everyone

The dreamer sent a message to his father
Said i'm alive and well in egypt land
Said he'd made a place for them beside him
For them to come and share his dreams with him

Joseph had a coat of many colors
Joseph had a purpose to pursue
Joseph had forgiveness for his brothers
The dreamer had a dream and it came true
Yeah Joseph had a dream and it came true

Lovely painting! It shows that nothing is really simple--coat of many colors, yes, but also many feelings.
