Painting A Life With Songs?

We all have a song or melody that reaches out and penetrates deep into our minds. It is sometimes so effective that you are almost sure that the composer wrote it just for you---alone. You find yourself humming or sing the words over and over at the oddest times---WHY?

Maybe it was a place where you were or maybe it was a special person that entered or exited your life. Yet, it could be a mystery of what is yet to come? Still we seem to hold on to those threads that the artist sang and painted into our mind just for us---alone.

This made me think of how our LIVES or a SONG and can simply be painted and framed, then placed on that universe---WALL.

: I will attempt to show a few examples of what paintings are hung in my gallery.

"Cause my ba-by he done lef dis town"
"Cause my ba-by he done lef dis town"
"The morning fog---may chill the air, I don't care."
"The morning fog---may chill the air, I don't care."
"Make the world go away and get it off my shoulder. Say the things you used to say and make the world ---go away."
"Make the world go away and get it off my shoulder. Say the things you used to say and make the world ---go away."
"I'll be there before the next teardrop falls."
"I'll be there before the next teardrop falls."

(EACH LIFE IS A PAINTING THAT IS HUNG IN A GREAT GALLERY)

Aha! Somebody's busy with digital art - and doing a great job at it I must say! I like it when you get sentimental and everything - on second thought, I like you anywhichway! Haha

Thanks Jo,you are the real artist in this family and taught me so much.

Tim thanks,as they say paintings are worth a thousand words.

Feline,I think songs are written about life, they simply tell a story and a painting can say it without words, yet each is remembered in its own way.

AHA YOUNG-UN--this is all your fault! Your digital art blew me away and I had to learn some of it---you keep me YOUNG. Now lets see some of YOUR LIFE paintings?

Great thoughts mom! I think some gallerys are filled with songs and others are quite devoid.

Wow! Well done and what a wonderful concept. I always say that God has blessed me with the ability to paint with words but painting with song is beautiful in its own way...I loved this...I am a visual person so this fits with how I think and see...thank you

Thanks Sheila, I'm a great believer in learning new things and today everything is at our fingertips. As I said above Cris A blew me away with his DIGITAL ART. Remember we are never to old to learn.

Great hub, I think songs are always running through my mind. (What little I have left:) Make the world go away, I'm trying to remember who did that? I love the tune though! Take care, Peace!!

Hey justom,yes sometimes it seems a tune or song will rattle around in my head (plenty of room for it--I guess)

I do remember Eddie Arnold singing this one the best. Thanks

I wanted to say it was Eddie, but just wasn't sure. Don't remember hearing anyone else do it but Eddie Arnold is the real deal for me. Peace!!

So glad I came across this one. I agree about songs speaking right to us. I love the by-lines you gave each "new" picture.

Thanks Sally, it seems that our history is told with paintings and songs.
