Painting A Life With Songs?

Updated on April 6, 2010

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!!

      Fay songs have told the stories of our lives through out history in some form or other just as a painting can tell a story with out written--words. Thanks

      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.
