This work is part of Deborah Kass's series MORE Feel Good Paintings for Feel Bad Times, the first part of which she began in 2002, partly as a critique to the Bush administration. The optimistic words featured in these ebullient and colorful works come from other sources—mainly music, quotations, and other works of art—and they explore the intersection of politics, popular culture, art history, and the self.

Artist Deborah Kass finds inspiration in artists like Andy Warhol, Ellsworth Kelly, Frank Stella, Ed Ruscha, Bruce Nauman and Louise Bourgeois from whom she borrows words and deliberately appropriates styles. Her current body of work, Feel Good Paintings for Feel Bad Times, illustrates lyrics from Broadway show tunes, pop music, and classic American songs. These paintings convey positive messages in celebration of the middle class and American culture. Kass chose Broadway as a reference point because she finds it definitively American, optimistic, and personal.

One of her most famous series, the Warhol Project from 1992—2000, employs Warhol's style to celebrate Kass's personal heroes, including singer Barbra Streisand and artists Cindy Sherman and Elizabeth Murray.
