Here are more lyrics and artwork from my song “United We Will Climb.” I need to finish up a project for work ASAP, and will record soon after.
The next song I am writing is called United We Will Climb. The challenge was to write a song for the theme “isolation.” I’ve finalized the lyrics and will begin releasing those along with images soon. The artwork below could become the cover of an album, once I’ve written and recorded enough songs.
Sometimes I feel like I have the world on a string.
It’s a very busy, chaotic world sometimes, but it’s still the world on a string. So, maybe it’s a matter of hanging onto the right feelings – holding on to a sense of the best part of the big picture, and trying not to let that feeling go when dealing with all the little, daily details.
Today’s post comes from Joanne Fink. I know a few of you who have subscribed to this blog have an interest in Zentangles. Yesterday, I received information about this book by Joanne Fink, featuring her drawing and patterning techniques.
The following letter is from Joanne Fink. She gave me permission to post this:
“Dear Friends & Family,
A few days ago I saw the moon in the daytime sky. The moment I saw it, I knew I had to use the image as inspiration for this art journal blog.
The pale moon against a light blue sky has always been a rare and magical sight for me. When I looked more closely, I actually saw the man in the moon for the first time. I saw the vague indication of a face. I had never seen it before! I suppose I had never observed the moon closely enough to see it. It’s kind of an amazing experience to see something for the first time that has been there all along.
Creating art and writing has a lot to do with observation and interpreting subject matter. I hope this eye opening experience helps me to open my thoughts when it comes to writing and creating art.
