8x10 oil on canvas

Optional frame in a rustic, grey washed wood ( this is an option that can be purchased separately in the shop, and will be shipped, added to the painting).


  One of a dozen of the "Rose Bouquet" collection, this painting is based on more of a modern "poet".  It seems as today, many poets set their words to music. This particular painting gets it's title from the songwriter, Charlie Reid and speaks of a passionate commitment to the one they love, that is willing to go to great lengths  in order to prove that love.

    ( If you choose to listen to " I'm Gonna Be", may I suggest you give the singer,  Blake Stratton's version a try?) Meanwhile, here is the "poem" that gives this painting it's title:


       "I would walk 500 miles 

         And I would walk 500 more

        Just to be the man

         Who walks a thousand miles

         To fall down at your door"



More information on The Rose Bouquet Collection:

   A dozen dreamy, 8x10 rose- themed works  that bring us back to the romantic eras and celebrates the poetry of love.  Because often nothing conveys the feelings of the heart better than poetry, each piece is accompanied  by and named for a part of a love poem.  Using both classic poets and modern poets who set their words to music (songwriters), each painting is meant to be given to a loved one, and comes with a handwritten card with the poem for that painting.
