Today was just awesome! My friend Tara came over and we spent the day collaborating on a painting. I had this idea of a silhouette of a person blowing bubbles, and wrapped around the bubbles, my favourite lyrics by Regina Spektor.





When I hear these lyrics sung, it makes me inspired to really change the world. To take the good parts of yourself and to let them fly out of you without holding back - it's what makes this world continue to have a soul. I get so much feeling out of these lyrics. I feel they truely are truely sentiments to live by.

"This is how it works
You peer inside yourself.
You take the things you like,
And try to love the things you took.
And then you take that love you made
And stick it into some - Someone else's heart
Pumping someone else's blood.
And walking arm in arm,
You hope it don't get harmed.
But even if it does
You'll just do it all again"





Thanks for looking! Smiley

Your painting is very eye-catching.  I love it!  But what really got me is the inspirational quote from the fabulous Willy Wonka!  Great idea!

That's some lettering I did in silver silver contact paper. It' great, because it's perfectly safe to peel and move again if needed! Smiley

It says, "We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams."

Your painting is very eye-catching.  I love it!  But what really got me is the inspirational quote from the fabulous Willy Wonka!  Great idea!

Actually, it's from a poem by Arthur O'Shaughnessy. Here's the rest of it:

We are the music-makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams.
World-losers and world-forsakers,
Upon whom the pale moon gleams;
Yet we are the movers and shakers,
Of the world forever, it seems.

With wonderful deathless ditties
We build up the world's great cities,
And out of a fabulous story
We fashion an empire's glory:
One man with a dream, at pleasure,
Shall go forth and conquer a crown;
And three with a new song's measure
Can trample an empire down.

We, in the ages lying
In the buried past of the earth,
Built Ninevah with our sighing,
And Babel itself with our mirth;
And o'erthrew them with prophesying
To the old of the new world's worth;
For each age is a dream that is dying,
Or one that is coming to birth.


Interesting eh? I liked the first part best, and the final two lines as well.

I know this is completely off topic from your lovely painting, but I just thought I'd tell you that you should totally post pictures of your craft room sometimes.  The little bits we get a peek of are fascinating!

When Jim and I redecorated our office/my craft room, I posted them in  "HOME SWEET HOME > Interior Decorating: Completed Projects".  There seem to be a lot of craft rooms in there!
