Sleepy Sundays: Light Rain

Light Rain Light Rain

The title of this work has a double meaning. The first being the obvious, weather-related phrase definition. The second goes a bit deeper. It’s meant to be a contradiction, or rather, blatant opposites somehow being fused together. Think of darkness and light together, sadness in a storm being shared with some colorful light.

Life is a series of ups and downs for all of us. My own has been no different, especially lately. The push and pull of these intense highs and unrelenting lows has left me a bit of a mess. The beauty of art is it doesn’t have to make sense. It just is, and oh what a “bella figura” can come from that.

This work was inspired by something my son said on our way home today. “It can’t rain all the time.”  He unknowingly quoted one of my favorite movies, The Crow.  

Are you a glass half empty or glass half full kind of person? Perhaps a little of both? Do tell. You know I love a good coffee chat.

Have a colorful Sunday!

Sleepy Sundays: The Lounge

The LoungeThe Lounge

Sometimes we all just need to relax. In today’s world, most of us lead busy lives. Based on common knowledge, many juggle parenting, work, side-work, relationships, friends, housework, etc, etc. (Not necessarily in that order.) We may often feel we “don’t have enough time” or “have too much work to do” but the truth is, we need to nurture our happier, fun side as well.

So, after all the mess of the week, sit back, relax, and enjoy some art & music with me. (As per Sunday tradition here.) The video featured below is from a new artist that goes by the name of Banks. Since I get a lot of compliments on the music I post here, I figured I’d feature her. The song is haunting & beautiful. Hope you all enjoy!

How do you relax?

Have a musical Sunday!
