‘Field of Dreams’ – David Nordahl’s Painting for Michael Jackson

Field Of Dreams

When David Nordahl began sketches for this work “Field of Dreams” for Michael Jackson, Michael sent him this note:

“David, if our kids don’t have the truth in heart of expression, then we’re dead. It’ll be as fake as manufactured flowers with no fragrance – not studio shots but kids in real life candid situations. We MUST capture the true life spirit of the wonders of childhood. If our picture has a full spectrum of human emotions; belief, truth, heart – then the entire world will be touched from generation to generation – immortality. Conquer the world – Love, MJ”

Nordhal says he received many such “stream-of-consciousness” missives from Michael. “Michael always thought big, and he was so eager to be a force for good.”
