No Words

Here is my addition to Marinas moly, I have chosen the track 'No words' , like Wil I have not listened to much Jazz, and hated this cd on first listening....then I put it on in the car, drove around listening to it and now I think it is wonderful ! Thank you so much for the introduction !
I hope the entry I have made doesn't come over as too dark, but it is how the track affected me :-)

Leh Lah

I had never heard of the jazz basest before so it was great to hear some new tunes, jazz too something I've never really tried, I really liked the track called "Remembering". I've never played a string instrument at all but i wondered if it was like trailing your hand in water (but flying). I used some references from the early BBC SSO work I did earlier too. Lynne I'll try and get this in the post tomorrow.

Getting going again

I am certainly enjoying painting over the top of the screen printing that Marty created. I see images within the mixing of paint, and am happily painting away while listening to the music. I really missed working and being able to leave stuff about and come back to it without packing it all completely away. Anyway. Still working.

First Snow of the Year.

It won't last the day, but it's pretty. Ought to be cold and crisp on our camping trip in northern Minnesota next weekend. I am so excited. I hope we have weather just like this 50°F high temperature today.

Do you see Pearl, our Greyhound in the doorway. The other dog, Marko, not shown, is not so impressed with the snow. This dog, Pearl, is from Texas. She is impressed by snow, even this little bit. Me too. Pretty day.

This book will be in the mail to Emma, tomorrow. I love this album.

I employed a lot of Adobe Illustrator tricks on the vignettes The whole thing changed a lot since I conceived it. I had fun.A little addition before mailing, squirty things from Lynne's art.

“Hana” – my entry in Ooli’s moly.

It took me a while… I was a little bit busy, but was keeping in the meantime the Ooli’s song in my head. Once you’ve heard it, you’ll never forget it. The music is like a daydream, full of emotions, it woke up too many associations in my head. I searched the web for the lyrics translation, but didn’t find anything. Only that “Hana” in Japanese means flower. I added a haiku by Kijo Murakami, which seemed suitable here. I think this is a love song, which is also a kind of story that makes you drift away, sometimes too far away that you can’t find your way back.
It was a challenge to follow the amazing Ooli’s drawing. Hope you like it.
