I had a nice long train ride this week, down to New York for work. I worked on the way down, but read and drew on the way home.
I set myself a little challenge for drawing. I was listening to music and had to draw the image that came to mind and could only listen to the song two times before I had to move onto the next song.
Since I have eclectic taste in music, I listened to a variety on the ipod shuffle. The first one is Sarah Brightman singing "allelujah"
This one is an oldie! Steeleye Span and "All around my Hat". Gosh I loved this group - her voice is awesome!
I don't have the name of this one, but it was a Country and Western song about dad and boy going fishing yada yada yada......
This is another CW tune by Shania Twain - Any Man of Mine...not a favorite in my house!! I'm the CW fan, not my tone deaf DH
Now for a switch - to Yiddish music with Itzhak Perlman playing Kletzmer music - Andy's Ride. Everytime I listen to this I think...yeah sure, I could play that....NOT.
And the last one - Anxiety by the Black Eyed Peas. I can see the anxiety in this drawing, can't you?
It was an interesting challenge, fun to do. I did more, but I couldn't finish them in the time allotted - so I'm going to change the rules and work on those other ones some more, and show them at another time.
