THEME: Art in the Desert

Inspired by the 3-sided, 10-12 foot tall, steel monolith recently discovered in Red Rock County, S.E. Utah Desert.

If you haven't heard, read the story here:

SONG TITLE: "I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles"

 

From the archives, for a different theme, but I thought I'd post it again.

SONG TITLE: "Be Careful, It's My Heart" by Irving Berlin


I like to combine works of art. In this collage:

"The House with Cracked Walls" 1892-94 by Paul Cezanne, 

"Madonna of the Sun" circa 1910 by Arthur B. Davies

 and the top-hatted gent is from "Camille Monet on a Garden Bench" 1873 by Claude Monet.

A favourite track of mine by Clearlake. Title maybe sums up our hopes for the coming months.

SONG TITLE: "I've Just Seen a Face"


 The central figure "the face" is an actual oversize photo-booth photograph that I cut out of the square format it was in, curtains behind her. I've looked at her face for a long time (she was sitting on my worktable, smiling at me in that Mona Lisa kinda way). The gent is from a DOVER book of Victorian portraits. He seems a smitten dandy sort.

SONG TITLE - Ain't Nobody Here But Us Chickens (Louis Jordan & His Timpany Five )
